Created by Francessca Bea of ACFD Designs, Francessca describes her line as “A Conscious Fashion Decision”. Just in time for the Christmas season, this giveaway item is part of ACFD Designs’ new range of versatile, skinny scarves. Created using a combination of natural dyeing and rust dyeing each scarf is 100% individual, and are the perfect addition to brighten up any winter outfit. They can be tied as a loose bow around the neck or can be accessorised as a head scarf to keep the wind at bay.
Every one of Francessca’s beautiful scarves are lovingly made in Britain using an arduous natural rust dyeing method. These luxurious pieces are impossible to create identically meaning every piece is completely unique and individual.
ACFD Designs is grounded in principles of high quality design, home-grown British craftsmanship and a global responsibility from the fabric sourced to the natural dyeing process. Sustainability lies at the core values that ACFD Designs holds dear. Each piece is individually handmade using a combination of traditional natural dyeing and rust dyeing. The dyeing process can take up to two days per scarf and each one results in a different print placement and colour variation leaving a entirely different print each time.
The fabric used is just as important as the printing method, and a great amount of time was spent sourcing the most ethical fabrics. We’re delighted to say that Offset Warehouse was the first step for Francessca, where she sources a beautiful silk from a small family run weaving collective in India. The silk is 100% natural containing no additives, bleaching or finishes and it also conforms to Organic Cultivation Standards. This silk is the perfect complement to the print and encapsulates the notion of natural design.
