Based on antique embroidery “samplers,” the Samplers of Sincerity collection features endangered or threatened species, alongside Victorian and Georgian mourning jewelry. Prior to the introduction of printing, embroiderers and lacemakers used samplers as a method to record their different stitches, motifs, and patterns for future reference.
Every Sabina Savage design is hand illustrated, telling the story of the collection through the composition and details. The scarves are drawn in full, and the four corners of each scarf offer different elements, ensuring the wearer will display a unique feature however the scarf is folded.
What bless’d example do I find writ in the word of truth
Of children that began to mind all nature in their youth.
A panda soft, a tiger fierce, a butterfly in flight,
Is it not true that humankind in animals delights?
Defer not, friend, your acts of hope, now we must all be wise,
To-morrow’s sun, for our dear beasts again may ne’er rise.
