Ometepe

This is our most elegant scarf. The vibrant colors are spectacular and look good across all skin tones.

This one serves as our own personal reminder that sophistication can be found in even the most humble of circumstances ... in this case in the feathers of a barnyard rooster roaming an island in Lake Nicaragua. It reminds us to never stop zooming in to find something beautiful wherever we are.

Our scarves measure 48" x 48" and are made from a carefully chosen blend of 30% silk and 70% modal, making them ethereally wispy and softer than these pictures can portray.

Keep on scrolling for lots of styling inspiration and the story behind the photo.

I’ve always been intrigued, but intimidated, by birders. Serious birders are a unique breed, with a rather opaque vocabulary and a tendency to cast furtive glances heavenward, where they perceive things hidden to mere mortals.

Despite my love of nature, photography and wildlife in general, somehow I never connected the dots. Maybe I thought such exotica was beyond reach, I’m not sure. But I do enjoy paying attention to What’s Out There. I believe in slowing down to listen and see. And I love the hunt. So unsurprisingly, I backed into a love of photo-birding on an extended sojourn through Central America a few years back.

One startling day I saw lance-tailed manakins, three-wattled bellbirds, blue-crowned motmots, emerald toucanets and 20 other bird species in a Costa Rican rainforest. That followed the earlier encounter with the Montezuma oropendolas and a dozen hummingbird species. Yeah, I got the bug - and some amazing photos.

On the same trip I casually noticed an unusually regal rooster strutting his stuff in a farmyard on the Isla de Ometepe in the Lago de Nicaragua. I shot a few frames of his regal hackles in the glowing sun, and later showed them to Charlene and Janelle (who of course had also seen those other, truly amazing bird shots.)

They immediately started scheming how they might someday use - you guessed it - one of those rooster images in their forthcoming scarf line.

I kinda had in mind a scarf named manakin, motmot, or oropendola. Oh well.
