This print is based on the 12th century Persian legend of the same name. It tells the story of a group of birds, each symbolising a human trait, on a journey to seek their leader. Their destination turns out to be a lake, where they are able to gaze at their own reflection, but their leader remains elusive.
In this version, the birds and flowers are treated with red and purple hues to complement the soft white background then printed on to silk.
Silk is one of the world’s strongest natural fibres. Its light weight and absorbency make it comfortable for use in the tropics, yet its ability to trap warm air close to the skin makes it suitable for colder climates.
This fine silk product is made with 100% silk from China, where it was first developed in the 27th century BC. Using the latest printing technology ensures the best graphic clarity and colour vibrancy while the hand-finishing certifies a durable finish and invisible stitching.
To maintain its prime condition, we recommend dry cleaning only. For the elimination of creases, lightly steam with a press cloth.
