Queen of the forest
The Our Forest collection was designed in collaboration with the Finnish Association for Nature Conservation (FANC). The patterns were inspired by species found in Finnish forests, such as the rare Calypso orchid, the well-known twinflower, and the national butterfly of Finland, the Holly Blue.
The collection includes the Queen of the Forest scarf, King of the Forest tie and Guardian of the Forest handkerchief.
Some of the proceeds from the collection go to FANC, to be spent on forest conservation.
Silk can be used to weave many different kinds of fabric. Terms such as ‘twill’ and ‘satin’ thus tell us how the fabric was woven.
Chiffon: A dull, transparent fabric of twisted threads.
Dry-cleaning is recommended for silk items. If you wish to wash your silk garments by hand, wash silk garments separately and always use a special detergent meant for natural silk, or Marseilles soap. Wash the item quickly in a large quantity of water, do not tubmle dry. Stretch garment into its original shape and iron on the reverse side when still damp. Stains can be removed with trichroloethylene, available from pharmacies.
