The theme of this silk scarf design is symbiosis. In the Namib desert, the Palmato Gecko and Aloe Gariepensis depend upon each other for survival. The aloe plant provides a safe haven and water for the gecko while the gecko protects the plant from pests. Both have adapted in order to thrive in the harsh conditions in the oldest desert in the world.
This scarf is based on a breath-taking commissioned painting of African wildlife and plants by southern artist, Emily Hobbs Nelson. 100% silk twill, hand-rolled edges, double-sided print with rich, saturated colors. Soft but with a bit of structure.
Size: 36” x 36” with hand rolled edge.
