Millefleurs (thousand flowers) refers to a background covered with small plants and blossoms. The millefleurs pattern on this lovely silk scarf is taken from Shepherd and Shepherdess Making Music, a sixteenth century wool and silk tapestry. The medieval tapestry depicts a shepherd couple entertaining themselves with music, while three sheep from their flock graze nearby in a colorful flower-strewn field. This delicate scarf design includes a garden composed of pinks, English daisies, daffodils, sweet violets, stocks, and calendulas, and makes a sweet gift for art lovers, gardeners, or anyone who wants a dash of color added to their spring wardrobe!
