SCARVES

Moena Moxham wears ‘Metamorphosis’ as a top next to two of her favourite things, 2018.

Art and luxury have gone hand in hand together forever. Just like champagne and strawberries, some things are just meant to be paired. So there was no question when Moena Moxham decided to marry two of her favourite things; drawing and scarves that she would choose to immortalise these on cashmere.

Upon her travels through India, Kashmir, and Asia in 2017, Moena was enraptured with the weaves and qualities of cashmere she found, the traditional and modern textile application techniques that she saw being used, and the vibrancy of the yarns and dyes. Meeting and working with local suppliers and mills in New Delhi and Gulmarg (particularly Ip Singh and his family; one of the oldest merchants of cashmere and silk in Chandni Chowk), coincided with her developing new artworks for her collection.

Moxham has an Honours Degree in Textile Design and is particularly interested in penetrative dye techniques. This means her scarves are both the same on the front as the back- a technical feat when printing onto natural woven fibres. Her eye for detail is not just focused on design- sourcing the lowest micron count cashmere available at the best price possible for the consumer was absolutely paramount.

Creating these stunning luxury scarves has taken her around the world but more importantly brought her into the lives of other dedicated and talented artisans and manufacturers who she now proudly calls friends.

Cashmere is a wonder fibre, it is eight times warmer than wool but much lighter; stores without wrinkles and modulates its insulating capacity based on humidity- so you are never too warm but always warm enough. Quality cashmere gets softer and better the more it is worn and washed, and is a sustainable source of fibre as the goats are combed or shorn for their wool.

Cashmere is trans-seasonal and because of this Moxham will release scarves as she designs them.

Moxham believes in creating articles that endure and are timeless. ‘Moena Moxham’ scarves are uni-sex, transgenerational and very versatile. They can be worn as a dress, trussed or tied with a belt as a top, shrugged on as a shawl or simply used as a blanket on long-haul flights or overnight excursions. A statement on their own or to bring colour and pattern to a simple outfit, scarves have always been an essential item for the minimalist traveller and fashionista. Below are diagrams of the many ways these gorgeous items can be worn and appreciated with photos as reference.

Moxham has designed and created bespoke packaging which presents each scarf in all it’s glory. Not only are these a beautiful way to store your beloved item, but they can also be repurposed; perhaps as a place for keepsakes, treasures and mementos.

Each design is strictly limited edition - keep coming back to see the latest release.
