‘Find wonder in everything, even the most commonplace’
Silk scarves inspired by the Linnaeus installation at the Chelsea Physic Garden, London. Featuring an ancient map of Linnaeus’ garden and botanical drawings by George Ehret.
The Chelsea Physic Garden was established as the Apothecaries’ Garden in London, England, in 1673 by the Worshipful Society of Apothecaries to grow plants to be used as medicines.
Carl Linnaeus created the binomial system of naming classifying plants & animals. The background repeat pattern on the scarf shows his 1745 botanical garden in Uppsala Sweden which can still be visited.
