Steel Blue and Cobalt Yellow Basket Woven Scarf @ Etsy

I'm excited to share this new design by your truly, me (Ozana Gherman @CloseDesign. This here is an original design woven by hand in my studio. The strong contrast of colors really make it pop on the street and the finish gives it a really unique appearance - almost silk like. I'm definitely one for mixing bold colors and textures to create a nice balance of design.

Floating through the winter was not easy so as soon as there was a glimpse of sunlight that graced the city pavement I was eager to take a journey and experience the hopeful light of what will be spring.

It's just amazing how the light picks up on the most subtle textures and colours to reveal an amazing palette for me that is aligning itself for spring.
