The story behind

Gardens inhabit the imagination of landscape gardener, engraver and illustrator François Houtin for whom the plant world is an endless source of inspiration. Some years ago he composed a dreamy personal interpretation of Leïla Menchari’s Mediterranean garden. Menchari discovered this garden in her native Tunisia at the age of 10 and it has inspired decades of creations since. She describes “creepers hugging enormous trees”, “vegetation inhabited by the rustle of bamboo in the breeze”, “the surrealism of this nature” and “the image of paradise”. A few seasons back this scarf was decorated with embroidery, stamps of multicolored flowers, blooming corollas and ornamental foliage. These colorful motifs are reproduced here through the magic of block printing.
