BEAUTIFUL PLEASURES SCARF - KERCHEIF
The last of our Beautiful Pleasures light cotton fabric made into a zero waste scarf that can also be worn as a bandanna. Finished off with a black 100% linen lining this scarf is soft on your skin and your hair.
The Beautiful Pleasures print was hand drawn by Evie before being digitised to create the repeat for printing. It's an ode to varied and beautiful queer bodies, and to the pleasure we can find in embracing them in all their forms. For us pleasure is so much broader than the sexual connotations it's usually associated with (though, let's not pretend we don't love those too!) but it's also the pleasure you find when you get into the groove of a dance, when you feel yourself really acing that run/yoga/soccer move you've been working on or playing with, it's when you take that first bite of your favourite food, or jump into the sea and feel the cold water revive you. This print, for us, is about really embracing YOUR body and all the wonderful pleasures it gives you.
"I've had long-term pain, allergies, and mental health issues that in the past made me really fight with my body, critisise it, and try to get away from it. But it's the only body I have. And it also brings me pleasure, it allows me to move through the world. So over the last few years I've been learning how to give it love, to say thank you for all the joys it brings me too. I honour the pain and the struggle, but I'm now also choosing to be grateful for the spaces between." - Evie
