The story behind

Engraver and illustrator François Houtin started out as a landscape gardener, a profession that he never completely abandoned. His love of nature inspires his designs, transporting us to a world of plants on the borderline between dreams and reality. Here the “Cabanes” depicted on the silk are gardeners’ cabins. The scarf presents us with sixteen little wooden palaces peeking out from the foliage. They evoke his own achievements as a gardener and appear to have sprung up from the same earth as the trees and vegetation they are made of.
