on helen ruth: designer spotlight

While you are reading this you should know I am probably by the pool, getting myself a sweet tan and generally enjoying life. My absence however is no excuse for not sharing the uh-mazing work of Scottish accessorise designer Helen Ruth. Based in Aberdeen Ruth specialises in beautiful scarfs, the prints a perfect mixture of original hand drawn illustration and found images. Taking inspiration from dolls and stories and generally everything good about childhood, Ruth’s designs are pretty much everything I like in a scarf. Hand finished, beautifully printed and unique designs. Swoon.In order: Russian Jigsaw Scarf £140, Carnival Scarf £149, Marie Antoinette Scarf £130, Secret Garden Scarf £130
The prints on the scarves seem to have a certain humor to them – and seem to have found the perfect balance between quirky design while still feeling like a classic investment piece. I love that Ruth doesn’t shy away from colours and all the little details in the scarf are what make them all so special. The Marie Antoinette design might just be my favourite with it’s mix of mint, orange and purple with leopard print in the main body.
If you’re in love with the scarves but shy of the £130/140 price mark she also creates handkerchief versions of the scarves at £25 a pop. IDEAL.
I would heavy recommend getting one of her pieces here. I do have a fondness for a good scarf and these pretty much fit the bill to a t.
Seriously if you do not fall in love with the print of Egg Lady and Friends you are dead inside.
