If you have not discovered the delights of a Scarf with Pendant, you should. They can be used as a scarf, a belt or even a curtain tie back – no joking!

Now only £20 reduced from £32.

We especially like the Sage green; the unusual colour draws attention to itself in a flattering way. They would look very dramatic in a drawing room holding back cream curtains. You could add to them with our fabulous silk velvet cushions in mink and your friends will be wondering which top interiors advisor you’ve been using.
