Immerse yourself in the wonder of the natural world with Arlette Ess’s ‘Koi’ scarves. Based on the artist’s original Indian ink painting, they feature the feng shui number of nine koi, swimming closely together in a swirl of colour and movement. The vivid colours are true representatives of the koi breeds; Sanke, Kigoi, Asagi, Tancho, Kumonryu, Matsuba, Utsuri, Goromo and Soragoi. With a mythological undertone, Ess explores the duality in the ‘attracting prosperity’ of these prized fish. Far beyond their symbolic notes, Ess’s works are beautiful wearable objects. Available in silk twill, silk chiffon and wool, these are scarves that transcend seasons, swimming around your neck in an organic display of shapes and patterns.
Ess’s art reads like a love letter to nature. Her intricate renderings communicate so much more than mere representation. They exude a sense of fragility, an ephemeral beauty that stems from the artist’s deep connectivity to the world. It is this essence that makes us so proud to include her scarves into our repertoire.
