Basque Live Edge Cotton Scarf - Sand and Clay
My maternal grandmother's family was originally from France, emigrating to Barcelona in the 19th century so perhaps that is why I have such a love and respect for the textile culture of the region. Partnering with Maison Basque, who brings these beautiful French fabrics to Canada, we have made a limited edition run in Toronto. Each scarf is handmade locally & falls beautifully.
Centuries ago, oxen in the Basque country were draped with large linen blankets to protect them from the elements. The linen featured striped patterns that identified the ownership of the oxen to a particular farm. The high quality of the fabric eventually made its way inside the farmhouses with a classic 7-stripe design. The 7 stripes evoke the number of provinces in the Basque country: 3 in France, 4 in Spain.

Life is a rigorous & sometimes dirty business. So we make shoes that can be cleaned easily.
All of our fabric models are washable in warm water, by hand or onthe delicate cycle.
Once clean, leave your shoes to air dry in a warm place.
For leather models, wipe off excess dirt with a damp cloth. Clean with a neutral shoe polish.
