To the seekers who are looking to find their ways; the travellers who are carrying the weight of their lives alone; the dreamers who are wishing to build better castles; and to all those survivors who are sailing through life and never ceasing to enjoy their journeys. I am one of you…
Every woman has an inner life, a life of dreams, hopes, memories and emotions, that lie deep within us and far away from our physical, material world. This is a place of fleeting moments that transport us from the monotony of our daily lives, lifting our spirits to a secret place of intangible visions and ethereal undefinable pleasures that bring light and joy to our hearts.
This is what we’re about. It is our aim to create an item that will take you to a place of fond memories, a place of pleasure, and a place of dreams of a different time or a time yet to come, where every woman would love to find herself in, through a single item.
Lulu Sophia has created just such an item. She brings you a very personal accessory that a woman can wear as a neck scarf or a head scarf, or just to carry with her wherever she goes. This is an item with a story – a story that every woman will be able to relate to.
The girl in a pink flowing dress came to my mind while I was painting during one sunny afternoon. She was lost, fractured, but full of hopes and desires. Her situation was all too familiar to me. Carrying tremendous empathy and compassion for her, I painted her in beautiful water-colours. So here she comes alive as she explores the world in a selection of painted scarves, twillies and wraps. I hope you will enjoy my stories and that each splash of colour will add a touch of romance to your travels.
FROM ART TO FASHION
We use the finest silk from our raw silk supplier and printer, Larisoseta, who are based in Lake Como, Italy. Our collection uses two types of silk – Silk Twill for scarves, and Silk Satin for wraps and cushion covers.
Silk Twills have a distinctive pattern of diagonal parallel ribs and a luxuriously smooth texture. Most designers choose a weight of 12-14mm, but we use a weight of 18mm. This gives the fabric durability, a beautiful drape, and a wonderful luster. It also helps to bring out the vibrancy in water-colour paintings.
Silk Satins have a typical glossy surface, with a higher luster. With their extremely smooth texture, they are pleasurable to touch. We use only high-quality silk satin, offering fluidity and elegance, for our cushion covers and summer wraps and dresses.
Classic Silk Scarves
Lulu Sophia’s classic silk scarves come in two sizes, 90cm x 90cm and 65cm x 65cm, and are made in 18mm silk twill with hand-rolled French style edges. Each scarf is printed with an original water-colour painting by Lulu Sophia and comes packaged in a cylinder box with a ribbon bodied story scroll, making it an ideal gift. The poems on the scrolls are written to send out a positive message to today’s modern and confident women.
