42cm x 42cm – Silk Twill – Hand-rolled Hems. A multicoloured pure silk pocket square featuring antique Ottoman flintlock pistols nestling in an arabesque of roses.
These exquisitely decorated Ottoman pistols are inspired by the myth of 'Selim's Hammer' – a weapon of supposed invincible power that belonged to Sultan Selim III. They are positioned within a hexagonal pattern inspired by the Damascus Tiles and created from pale green and burnt orange roses. This mesmerising pocket square with its flamboyant colourway explores the relationships between beauty and violence and mankind and nature in stunning printed detail.
The bright and many coloured palette works a charm in a pale blue jacket, will contrast delightfully with a rich tweed and will really pop in a darker blazer. It is more than just an accessory it is a conversation starter.
In terms of size this is a luxury pocket square which is generous enough to create complex folds, be used as a jaunty neckerchief or even to wrap around your favourite summer hat.
Our silk squares are printed and hemmed in the England and come in branded presentation cases so they can be kept in pristine condition.
