'Shelf Life' Silk Pocket Square


Illustrated in watercolour and digitally printed onto silk satin within the UK. This silk square measures 30x30cm and is perfect for a gentleman's pocket, to accessorise a handbag, or looks lovely tied around a wrist. Each pocket square comes beautifully wrapped and presented in a vintage tin. In addition the 'Shelf Life' design also comes with a card inside the packaging naming all the books featured in the illustration. Tins will vary.

The 'Shelf Life' design is part of the 'Life Laundry Collection' developed from Emily May's love of narrative and storytelling. The collection is based around illustrating objects with a familiarity and history that speaks to everyone. This piece contains books that have only just been read, have been owned since childhood, and some that have been passed down from mother to daughter for over a hundred years.
