Victorian art is woefully short of dinosaurs. Take for example, the most famous Victorian designer, William Morris, who worked for 40 years creating books, paintings, embroidery, stained glass, and hundreds of lavish wallpaper designs. But do you see any dinosaurs? Nope.
But we fixed that. Don drew a parody of Bill’s most famous pattern—Strawberry Thief. But this new design includes all the dinosaurs you could ever want and each one is nibbling a fresh strawberry. The pattern is called Strawberry Thieves and it’s available on a square scarf, long scarf, necktie, and pocket square. Get some tips on caring for your Calamityware silk here.
Square scarf 36" square (90 cm) silk habotai (8 mommes) with hand-hemmed, rolled edges. Silk habotai is the fine silk weave originally developed for kimonos. Very light with a smooth surface. It’s the best of the best.
Long scarf 27" x 78" (68 cm x 198 cm) silk habotai (8 mommes) with hand-hemmed, rolled edges. Perfect for someone who prefers a long scarf and some thunder lizards eating fruit.
Necktie 3" wide (7 cm) silk twill to add a subtle charm to your wardrobe.
Pocket square 12" (30 cm) silk twill (14 mommes) with hand-hemmed, rolled edges. Perfect to add a dash of color and prehistoric fruit-lovers to your blazer pocket. Some people have said they plan to frame the pocket square to spice up an art collection.
As a lover of scarves, dinos, and all things Victorian, this was obviously the perfect gift. I splurged for the long scarf, and am so happy I did. It's so long, meaning I can use it a million different ways. The colours and material are all top quality. Thank you for correcting Mr. Morris's design, and adding some much needed dinos!
My husband got rave reviews when he wore this new tie to the office. It's subtle enough to wear to work (he's an attorney) but definitely got noticed. Great product! More ties, please!!
Got it or the wife, gave it to her while looking at her like an expectant puppy...she looked confused...then DINOSAURS!
I received my scarf yesterday in the mail and I couldn't wait to wear it. So I did. The colors are rich and the fabric luxurious. Or maybe the colors are luxurious and the fabric is rich. BOTH! Since my d-i-l noticed it right away and commented favorably, I'm ordering one for her as a Christmas gift. Thank you, Don, both for making my holiday shopping less loathsome and for decorating me in my new festive scarf!
Looks great on my girl. Hangs on our wall and reminds us of the importance of having some whimsy in our lives every day.
Bought as a Xmas present for my wife. She loves it. She had it on in church last week and got several complements and then one of the ladies sitting behind her in the choir loft realized it had dinos on it. Caused a few laughs and made everyone happy.
I bought the tie and pocket square for my husband and the large scarf for myself. We wore them to a fancy party and got SO many compliments from the best people. If you are considering a purchase, consider no further!!! Buy all of em, you deserve it.
Just found treasure in my mailbox! The colors and details in the print are charming. It will brighten many outfits, ties nicely, and has great drape. The silk is soft and a lighter weight than most of my scarves which I think will allow a wide variety of ways to style it. Can't wait to wear it and see who notices the dinosaurs!
Absolutely love this scarf beautifully detailed and fun
Loved mine and ordered one for my sister in law. The colors are wonderful!
