‘Where art thou, wren?’ said the eagle.
‘I am here, above thee,’ said the wren.
‘Càit a bheil thu, dhreathain-duinn?’ ars an iolair.
‘Tha mis’ an seo, os do chionn,’ ars an dreathan-donn.

The story of the eagle and the wren stretches across cultures, languages and generations. Once, long ago, all the birds decided that to elect a king, a competition would be held to see which bird could fly the highest. The wren rides in the feathers of the soaring eagle before bursting out above to win – a tale of little outwitting big, the seemingly weaker overcoming the mighty. It is not the powerful eagle that rules all birds but the wren.

  • This scarf is hand-finished so the exact size will vary slightly.
  • Professional dry cleaning recommended.
  • Each hand-finisher will have a slightly different nuance to the way they hand roll the edges of each scarf – no two scarves will have the exact same hand-rolled edge. 
  • Store your silk flat, untied and out of direct sunlight. Avoid spraying with perfume and contact with rain, water and other chemicals. Entrust your silk to a professional dry cleaner when needed. Do not wrap or tie your silk in wet hair.
