BERGGRAT. The Ridge. in Swiss Mountain silk.
Our Berggrat. The Ridge. scarves are woven on a wooden handloom that is set-up with 8 shafts to produce the most refined alpine patterns in lines and classic graphical style elements. The design patterns tell stories of homecoming and birds´ eyes watching over us when travelling abroad. Artisan weaver Katharina Osterwalder accentuates the playful translucency and range of variation in surface design that can only be created by the most meticulous handweaving techniques. Although all scarves in this collection are dominated by the black warp and weft, each item shows a truly unique and singular design in lines and ornaments. Red lines remind us of the warmth and bloody scratches when chopping the wood for the fireplace. The black and white of winter is disrupted by a fine line of green branches as a glimpse on past summers and those to come. All scarves are handwoven with Swiss Mountain Silk, a trademark of Swiss yarn manufacturer Camenzind + Co.AG in Gersau.
