Richard Allan designed silk scarves, an every day essential of the time. He established his business, Richard Allan Scarves in Mayfair in 1962 and produced  an exceptional range and quantity of scarves during the 1960s and '70s. Richard left an extensive archive of designs which Cate Allan (daughter) is now reworking for both fashion and interiors, having launched with new silk scarves, then limited edition design prints (artworks on paper) and  most recently, silk and velvet cushions. 

Designs are carefully chosen from our 1960s~70s archive and curated to form cohesive contemporary collections, for silk scarves as well as for interiors.

Our scarf print studio holds GOTS certification for silk production (Global Organic Textile Standard).

The paper print studio is part of the 'Green Rooster' initiative working towards reforestation, animal protection and environmental education. 

We strive for all items in our collections to be made with at least 90% natural, non-synthetic materials or ingredients - e.g. silk, wool, cotton. 

Our packaging is fully recyclable, biodegradable or compostable packaging.
