The Jaguar's Paradise Scarf is based on an antique embroidery sampler. It features a majestic, endangered jaguar prowling the gardens beneath the faux embroidered schoolhouse. The jaguar is surrounded by other endangered species from around the world. The scene is framed by delicate illustrated floral embroideries and a poem.
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.
The jaguar in all splendour resides in paradise,
Her spots aglow, her whiskers keen, she prowls the gardens twice
For grace and virtue will not save her flock in all their glory,
As clouds approach to cast shadow and end their innocent story.
O, help we must! Let’s aid these beasts and do the work together,
By joining in and acting fast we’ll end their inclement weather.
