Design Process Ilona Tambor

DRAWING

Each element in our designs is hand drawn by pen or pencil and coloured by Ilona Tambor which can take between 4 – 6 weeks to complete.
Beginning as hand-drawn sketches – there’s soul at every stage of the Ilona Tambor process.

EDITING

Our illustrations are then scanned in high resolution and edited to create the final composition. We take great care in our unique designs and make sure that each and every line is in the right place before starting the creative painting stage.

COLOURING AND PAINTING

Each pattern variation is then digitally painted by Ilona. Ilona’s use of bold hues and tones, characteristic view of the colours, and impeccable attention to detail allows you to enhance your choice of ensemble, telling your own story through colour and nuanced fantasy. You can see more details on the Tambor World page.

PRINTING

We are proud to say that all of our scarves are printed and manufactured in Lake Como Italy. We are carefully finessing each design with colour profiles to achieve truly double sided results. Silk manufacturing is main reason that made Lake Como famous all over the world. Silk from Lake Como is indeed very well known for its quality and elegance, which made it one of the most exported products of the latest century.
