Julia Ritson Freda 1


This scarf is inspired by a Freda Robertshaw work. Julia has taken the colours of Freda’s Butterfly painting and made them her own. The detail of the linen used for the painting is captured in this scarf. There is a strange disconnect between the softness of the silk and the printed effect of the linen.

This 97cm square scarf is one of a limited edition of 25. No more than 25 of these designs will ever exist. The painting Untitled 0803 (after Freda Robertshaw, The butterfly) has been reproduced on pure silk with hand rolled edges. Each scarf is wrapped in unbuffered tissue to preserve the silk and boxed in a buckram covered black archive box. The 26cm square box is debossed with the artist’s name. The card enclosed with the scarf includes the artist’s story, image of the original painting, signature and edition number of the scarf.
