What's the inspiration behind the design you made for/with us?

"I use the term loosely on calling No. 46 a necklace as its more of a scarf, but it was inspired by the easy and effortless look of Parisian women who wear neck handkerchiefs. They add a certain sophistication to add any outfit and I wanted to create one through the Gamma Folk lens. Which means we need to naturally dye it and add a ceramic component! The peachy tone is dyed with Catechu which is derived from the acacia tree and recently learned it was used in ancient times in Ayurvedic medicine as well. The ceramic component is reminiscent of a belt buckle and loved how it still shows off the scarf and weaves in and out of it."
