Step into a world where the opulent tapestries of Polish King Sigismund Augustus reign supreme. My A/W 2023 Silk Scarves collection draws inspiration from these historic treasures, once housed in the venerable Wawel Castle of Cracow. They are a testament to centuries of elegance and creativity, now preserved within the walls of a national museum.
My A/W 2023 collection invites you to step into the heart of these enchanting fairytale forests. The colour palette mirrors the rich, warm tones of autumn and winter, infused with an enticing splash of raspberry red to breathe life into the season.
At the core of my collection lies ‘The Fairytale Forest’ scarf, an artful symphony of luxuriant greenery and blossoming irises. Legend whispers that the first glimpse of an iris sparks a love that blooms in return. Within this enchanting narrative, our protagonists take centre stage: the ‘girafficorn’ and a heron engaged in a graceful tussle with a coiled serpent around the bird’s beak. The ‘girafficorn’ embodies boundless imagination and the extraordinary, while the heron, a timeless symbol of tranquillity and harmony, engages in a delicate dance of good versus evil with the serpent.
Every design commences as a hand-drawn sketch, a testament to the unwavering dedication and artistic precision imbued in each piece. With three captivating colour options, my A/W 2023 silk scarves collection extends an invitation to immerse yourself in a world of timeless elegance, boundless imagination, and artistic excellence.
Discover ‘The Fairytale Forest’ and allow it to spirit you away to where the wonders of nature and the depths of symbolism coalesce, where the mundane transcends into the extraordinary. Embrace the essence of Polish King Sigismund Augustus magnificent tapestries and experience the enchantment of my A/W 2023 collection.

In this time of change and uncertainty, the release of my brand new Spring/Summer 2021 Collection of silk scarves and silk cushions has a dual purpose. At Ilona Tambor, I believe that art and fashion serve to motivate and elicit emotion and inspiration in both the wearer and the viewer. Since I believe that art serves a purpose, it’s my responsibility as an artist and designer to use my art as a vehicle to uplift and to inspire hope through my craft.
Certainly, we’ve all felt the lack of freedom over this past year. Being locked in our homes without the ability to travel freely and experience the world as we had become so accustomed to has dimmed the flame of creativity and passion in our hearts.
This soon-to-be-launched collection of premium, new silk scarf and silk cushion prints aims to help revive that passion, by taking the wearer – and the viewer – on a journey of enchanting colours, fairy tales, fragrances, and invigorating imagination.
My new Spring/Summer Collection of 2021 comprises designs inspired by the animals that once used to roam Morocco. Surrounded by the land’s indigenous flowers and fruits, these works are infused with the tangible aura of the regions fragrances and mystical spirit that resides both now and eternally.
Beginning as hand-drawn illustrations, I digitise these designs before printing them onto luxurious, ethically sourced silk. These illustrations resonate with our changing world and mentality, urging us to appreciate the beauty around us and work to preserve it.
Wafting Whimsy – Silk Scarves and Silk Cushions
Available on square scarves, ribbon scarves, and twillies, I’ve now made these patterns accessible on comfortable cushions, too. Since going outdoors is a less frequent occurrence these days, art inspired by the lands of Marrakesh and the Atlas Mountains can now function as a muse in your own home while staying safe amidst luxurious comfort.
While my previous range offered a whimsical splash of colour and elegance on the pages of three Condé Nast Traveller issues in 2020, the latest collection brings extends its reach. The Ilona Tambor label offers a new variation of silk scarf, along with a home décor option to illuminate interior spaces.
