It was in 2011, at the beginning of a summer holiday when accompanied by the warmth of the greek sun and the dark blue of the Aegean sea, an idea was born; to combine the elegance of the silk with the strong culture of my birth country.
The Grecian Chic has two collections one inspired from everyday life and the other from the history and mythology. Both collections feature silk scarves, pocket squares and ribbons. The “Classical” derives its source of inspiration from the history, traditions and even mythology! The “Grecian Life” represents everyday life in a comical way. The Grecian Chic lady travels around the islands and mountainous villages to pose next to cult male figures! Visits the biggest European cities and explores them though the eyes of a greek!
All of the designs are to their finest detail hand pencil drawings on paper before colour is added to bring them to life! The final drawings are digitally printed on 100% pure Twill silk and each scarf has a hand-rolled hemming finish. All products are made in England!
The Greek Design meets British Craftsmanship!
