About DOROTHY & EVELYN
For this new collection of scarves I drew inspiration from my mother Dorothy Johns and her great friend Evelyn Habel.
Both lived in the farming landscape of the Western District of Victoria.
Both preserved their produce in vacola jars, cooking for family, shearers, parties flower shows...
They understood the value of good food, the latest in fashion and beautiful scarves.
It was the 50's and 60's...
Each new season, when the wool or wheat cheque arrived,
they would head down the highway in the chevrolet with great excitement and glamour towards the department stores for their gorgeous new season outfits.
The fun, laughter and stories could be heard across the land, days before and months after, until the next trip.
My father Clarrie, wryly commented, "Their wasn't a sheep dog in Australia that could round those two up".
Enjoy these Australian designed, 100% mulberry luxury silk scarves season after season.
