Designer Profile - Sabina Savage

Sabina Savage takes inspiration from all over the world. She creates extraordinary narratives that tell imaginative and detailed stories about the lives of animals both great and small. Sabina’s scarves are an embodiment of her lifelong passion and connection to nature, animals, and the cycle of life. The scarves are printed from her deeply textured, kaleidoscopic drawings. The designs embrace mythology to exude an effortlessly mysterious and exotic style.

Sabina Savage’s studio is located at the Hamilton House in Bristol. The illustrations are drawn to full scale, typically on a 1.5 meter square. This allows for the immense detail that has become Sabina’s trademark. Each piece takes between 4-5 weeks to draw, and a full collection takes 6 months to illustrate. Millions of tiny pencil strokes bring each portrait to life. All the production is done in Como, Italy, the historical silk capital of the world. The scarves are made from exquisite fabrics of silk, wool, and cashmere, and each is hand finished with either fringed or rolled edges. It is the finish of the outstanding weave of the scarf that gives it the final finished beauty. Every scarf is produced by the skilled Italian craftsmen with as much care and detail as it was designed by Sabina.
