The story behind

Based on the Washington's Carriage scarf design.
In 1789, George Washington, the newly appointed first president of the United States of America, made his way from his New York residence to Federal Hall to give his inaugural address. Before a delighted crowd, the president was escorted in a sumptuous carriage decorated with spread eagles that was depicted three years later in a watercolor in the manner of a coach-builder by J. Robert Hart, “Profile of the Carriage of George Washington made in London. Drawn in 1792”. This scarf is inspired by the watercolor. We like to think it’s an exact representation of the carriage that was part of that historic day!
