Special addition to the S/S 2021 Scarves collection. New designs The Moroccan Day’s in 3 different colourways and various sizes. I was working on this design last 2 months and finally, it’s live !
Read the story behind this scarf illustration:
Known for its cultural splendour, ambience, and ancient wonders, the lands of Morocco hold many wonders and magical secrets. The silhouettes and imagery of this place captivate and enchants us, and for good reason. And yet, there’s something else beyond the souks and cafes, the mosques, and the rooftops – something else with a legacy that goes back even further than Morocco’s alluring civilisation of music, mosaics, and warmth.

See how the illustration becomes wearable art and enjoy the variety of possible knots and how to wear the silk scarf.
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.
