AMORGOS - Digital Printed Silk Twill Scarf by MAGNADI
A contemporary print with motifs inspired by traditional decorative art of the Cycladic islands. The 'Amorgos' print has colors found in details of the houses on the island of Amorgos, Cyclades.
In Ancient Greece, Amorgos was known for its distinctive ‘Red’ color silken tunics which were worn by the women of the island. “Amorgi” was a red color obtained from a plant which grew only on the island of Amorgos.
Margianna Dragoumanou, the founder and designer of the silk collection MagnaDi, reveals through her contemporary designs her passion and nostalgia for Greek art and culture. She conjures a colorful, mythical world reminiscent of the blue Aegean Sea and its islands, bringing us the warmth of summer.
All her scarves are hand-drawn and then digitally printed on silk that is produced in Soufli, in northern Greece. Back in the day, Soufli was a well-known region for textile companies and manufacturers of Greek silk. Today, there is only one textile mill left in Greece which produces silken fabrics and has all the equipment needed for digital printing.
