A light scarf can work aesthetically at any time of the year but it is most practical in autumn and spring. Thanks to artist and print designer Sophia Rogge’s new assortment of silk scarves, you can now buy one that looks good, protects you from the autumn chill and has a positive impact on the environment.
London-based Rogge’s ‘Fiji Collection’ comes in five coral prints and 10% of all sales go to the charity Corals for Conservation. The collection not only uses environmentally-safe dyes but are also made and printed in the UK resulting in a minimal carbon footprint. Rogge will also personalise the scarf for you at extra cost, printing your requested message along one of the borders. Later this year sees the final addition to the Coral Collection with a selection of moody fossil print scarves in charcoals and tans – a treat for your winter wardrobe.
Rogge graduated from the Wimbledon School of Art (BA, Fine Art) and then attended the renowned Hochschule fur Kunste, exploring and developing her fascination with painting natural and organic forms.
“Over the years, as a designer, I have continually been drawn back to natural and organic forms,” says Rogge. “My brand is about amalgamating art, fashion and supporting one of nature’s most beautiful and fragile living organisms. I choose the charity Corals for Conservation because I was so inspired by their work educating local communities across the world about how to harvest coral beds in order to repopulate coral depleted areas that have been affected by tourism and other contributing factors.”
