Hear me Roar! Sister Fox and Brother Wolf
Posted on February 26, 2012
This is my first scarf design for Creative Textiles III scarf project at uni, inspired by the Russian folk tale, Sister Fox and Brother Wolf, I use the mirror technique as used in normal scarf design. But the special thing is there is not any repetition in the print. The foxes and wolves are in the same direction and drawn to look like the same objects.
Most frequent Russian personages of animal tales are Fox and Wolf. Russian folktales present Fox as a sneaky, crafty and treacherous creature that using its slyness gains the upper hand over stronger animals, such as Wolf and Bear. Wolf is characteristic for different human features: as a rule he is angry, greedy, voracious, and stupid; Fox has a special pleasure in playing tricks on him and every time Wolf is easily duped again and again. Far less definite is the image of Bear, yet one of his most peculiar features is slow-wittedness.
This scarf is made for my studio project at uni. However, many friends asked me to produce it for sell. I produced the first stock for 80 pieces and test the market on instagram and they’re sold out in only one week. So I’m producing more soon, you can reserve by leaving your e-mail in this post.
Each piece consists of 95×95 cm high quality silk combination fabric,
a desire for the best, and my labour for hand drawing.
Price is 1690 THB, 65 USD if you wanna order from abroad
If you want one, just email me for payment details at
Kamonn.firstname.lastname@example.org , or leave your e-mail in the comments.
Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to the very warm welcome and great feedback. The scarfs have already been sold to 100 customers so far. This would be the great motivation for me to produce more and more designs in the future.
Thanks to you all! xx
