Dorothy Grant’s Scarves Collection

Dorothy’s garments have been described as a site of intersection. They are a creative space
where fashion meets Haida art, myth and history. Like art, fashion should not be stagnant, but
be constantly moving to convey a contemporary culture.

 

“DG Summer Raven Scarf”

Description

The “DG Summer Raven” scarf is a bold Haida “formline” design inspired by the
majestic mischievous trickster raven. It is bordered with Dorothy’s signature wave
pattern and finished with a raw fringe. In four elegant colors, the scarf is extra-long so it
can be easily wrapped numerous times around the neck or draped elegantly on the
shoulders.

The fabric is featherweight to touch, yet warm enough for any season. Modal is a
luxurious fabric made from beech tree pulp that is used for its durability, flexibility and
soft feel.

The Raven in Northwest legends symbolizes creation, transformation, knowledge,
prestige, as well as the complexity of nature and the subtlety of truth. He also expresses
the unknown and shows that every person sees the world differently. The Raven was
often called upon to clarify truths in visions, as the wise elders knew that what the eye
sees is not always the truth.

The colours are:

Cream//Red/Black
Turquoise/Black
Gray/Black
Mauve/Red/Black

Material

Silk and Modal
