A beautiful image with a subtle colour blend, this scarf features a scene with a couple dressed in extravagant costumes sharing drinks in a quiet conservatory after a ball. The male leans across the table, gazing at the female whose face is hidden behind a black mask. She is seen draping her fingers across her chest which is one of many gestures and details in the painting that Madrazo uses to evoke a playfully suggestive subject. He further entices the viewer with his extraordinary skill in the way he conveys particular materials - satin, fur, porcelain, glass, feather, and velvet, all bathed in light.

Macclesfield Printed Silk

Macclesfield was once the centre of the English silk weaving industry and the world's biggest producer of finished silk. The area has been printing silk for over 300 years and at one point had over seventy mills operating in the town. The town is close to a water supply that passes through limestone, and when used in washing and dyeing it gives silk a uniquely attractive lustre.

Our silk scarves are printed at a mill that has been producing printed fabric on the same site for the past fifty years and the process uses water sourced from its own reservoir.
