OUR DESIGNS

POCKET SQUARES & FOULARDS

 

Currently, we offer four unique designs, each with a variety of color ways. We are always designing, so new pieces will be offered as they are made. All our designs are drawn entirely by hand, before being printed in England. All our pocket squares are made from 100% silk, with hand-rolled hems.

ORVIETO

The hometown of ANTONIELLA founder, Orvieto holds special meaning, both personal, and historical. Built on ancient Etruscan caves hewn in porous rocks, Orvieto is a medieval city abundant in art, surrounded by vineyards, and full of life. Famous for their truffles, wines, the wild natural surroundings, as well as incredible architecture - namely the Duomo di Santa Maria Assunta, the crown jewel of the city. 

The main scene is a view from a local winery, overlooking the hilltop city, with the Duomo prominently visible. The patterns surrounding the main vignette are inspired by patterns painted on the walls in various smaller churches in the city. 

The four smaller vignettes, clockwise from the top are 1) San Giovenale church, one of the oldest churches in the city. 2) Piazza Republica. 3) Duomo di Santa Maria Assunta. 4) Piazza Cahen. These pieces are naturally colored, with soft pinks, greens, blues and golds, and trimmed with either blue, red, or natural edges.

ROMA

The heart of Italy, and at one point, the civilized world, Rome was an obvious choice to honor in our artistic exploration of Italy. Featuring various monuments and scenes from the city, including the Vatican, Trevi Fountain, the Colosseum, the Spanish Steps, Piazza Navona, the Pantheon, and others. 

The leafed patterns around the edges of the design are derived from the ancient fresco, The Garden of Livia, which is on display in Rome. 

Colored in red, blue, and violet, the three color ways exemplify the majesty, richness, and power of Rome.

ASSISI

Assisi, the birthplace of ANTONIELLA. From within the Basilica of San Francesco, the dream began. Hours were spent studying the patterns within the church, and in the city, learning its atmosphere and personality. This design is the least image-based of the three, and relies mostly on intricate patterns, colors and shapes. 

The three color ways that were used encapsulate the raw, natural beauty of the area. Assisi is a place where the lines between city and nature are erased. Forested mountains embrace the white-stoned city from one side, and vast plains and landscape expand like sky in the other.

FIRENZE

Full of rich history, Florence Italy is one of the most deservedly iconic and incredible cities in Europe. This pocket square takes the wearer on a journey through some of the most-loved spots in the city - surrounding the main vignette which overlooks the duomo, the four quadrants feature scenes of Ponte Vecchio, Santa Croce, Palazzo Uffizi, and the Piazza Delle Signoria. The geometric motifs and patterns in the corners and the surrounding borders have been pulled directly from motifs found within and on the Duomo itself. On the outermost border, a landscape of Tuscany inspired by the famed fresco 'Procession of the Magi", found within the Palazzo Medici in Florence is rendered.

This piece was entirely hand-drawn on paper with pen and ink, before digital rendering and coloring.
