Why Clare Haggas? …just because
Clare is an award winning wildlife artist who lives in the heart of the Lincolnshire Wolds. Her paintings are completely unique, like nothing else you are ever likely to come across.
Inspired by the countryside around her, she only has to look outside of her studio windows, to have her muses in every direction. Pheasants, Partridge, Hares etc. What sets her apart from other wildlife artists however, is the background. Not one bit of scenery is present, just a plain yet vibrant colour, making her subjects the only visual experience.
From all of her wonderful prints came the next phase in her growing empire…Silk Scarves. Taken from her artwork, these 100% twill silk scarves were created as a luxury accessory to be worn at any time, whether in the field, or at the races. Even like I do, every day.
Each year, she also likes to include a limited edition design, usually of 250. Once they are gone they’re gone. This year we saw her painting “Plumimg Marvellous” transformed onto silk in the most sublime way.
Since embarking on this project, Clare’s scarves have become a worldwide success. You only have to look at her social media sites to see just what an awesome following she has.
What sets these products apart from many others is quite simply, they are completely *Made in Britain*. Everything you see when you receive your purchase is. Even down to all the packaging. Every item is also traceable, which counts for a lot nowadays.
You would be hard pushed to find another designer so passionate about keeping her products “home grown”.
A lady who believes in ethics, you will not see any of her products on any of the sales bandwagons. Whether it’s Black Friday, Cyber Monday et all. Through organic progression, and the introduction of new seasonal designs, you may be lucky enough to pick up an end of line deal, but at no other time.
Not forgetting the men. Clare developed a gents collection. Comprising of Silk ties, and Pocket squares. They make the perfect gift for ‘the chap who has everything’. All in the same incredibly vibrant colours as her scarves, even ladies are wearing these😘
…and just recently introduced, as a final finishing touch are her divine little scarf rings. Available in a gold, rose gold or a silver finish, the perfect accompaniment. When worn on your scarf, I like to describe it as being “Sealed with a Kiss”
If you are stuck with what accessory to wear for any special occaion, or if you want something ‘just a little bit different’, I would thoroughly recommend any of Clare’s products.
But don’t take my word for it, pop over to either her social media sites @clarehaggasfineart or check out her website. http://www.clarehaggas.com.
Until next time, be happy, stay happy and most of all have fun.
Bye for now. See you all soon.
