Sara and Vandra met several years ago at a local Norfolk cafe and soon found they had much in common. Both had lived abroad for several years – Sara in California and Vandra in Central Mexico. Both girls also found they shared a passion for stylish, simple and inclusive fashions and accessories, preferring natural fabrics like linens, fine wools, cottons and luxurious silks. The also shared a love of colour, finding individual ways to add colour to outfits using accessories like scarves.
The idea of producing a silk scarf collection together arose after Sara took a holiday to, and fell in love with, the stunning Lake Como region of Italy, an area world famous for its luxurious silk and textile industries.
The Monarch Butterfly, renowned for its annual migration across the American continent to the volcanic mountains of central Mexico, is the inspiration for this first collection from SáVan and is incorporated as part of the design logo.
The scarves in this collection are made from 100% Italian silk and measure 90 x 90cms. The vibrant colours, and the design, are the influence of Mexico where this butterfly is symbolic and revered spiritually. The unique design of this scarf collection enables the scarf to be worn to show one or three of its unique colour borders simultaneously – hence three different looks from one accessory. The colours, influenced by the four seasons, suit and flatter every skin tone. The scarves have been created with women in mind and will compliment any outfit from jeans and T-shirt to business/office attire or that LBD for an elegant night out.
