Vintage Christian Dior Silk Scarf with Irish Linen Cushion Pillow
Custom made one-of-a-kind luxury cushion created from an exquisite vintage silk Christian Dior fashion scarf in an exquisitely coloured design. The prominent and iconic ‘D’ signifying the brand’s logo is placed the proudly in the centre. Repetitions of the letter fall softly outwards in varying shades of red from bold to powder pink against a sumptuous grey ground. Sometimes with designer garments if the logo becomes the whole design it can be overbearing but this vintage specimen the feature is very tasteful indeed. It would make an elegant showpiece to a contemporary interior. Dior was hugely important in the 1950s emerging again after the war in their part in making fashion extravagant once again and is still today the ultimate in the couture fashion world.
Made from a beautiful silk, with an extremely soft tot the touch surface that looks and feels almost like velvet, it is simply divine. Backed in new 100% pure Irish linen, the aristocrat of textiles and certified by the Irish Linen Guild, lined in a layer of natural bamboo wadding, filled with new plush duck feather insert and a concealed zip. The traditional oatmeal color linen is a combination of the unbleached raw colour of the natural flax plant on the weft intertwined with pristine white on the warp, resulting in a beautiful mottled effect.
