  • Exclusively designed and produced for Westminster Abbey, this soft Georgette silk scarf features the Cosmati Pavement, which can be found in Westminster Abbey in front of the High Altar.
    The scarf is handmade in the UK from 100% silk; in tones of grey and brown, with highlights of blue, red and green, this would co-ordinate well with a variety of outfits. Lightweight and luxurious, this large square scarf can be worn in a variety of ways, with different details visible each time you wear it.
    The Cosmati Pavement is a unique and remarkable object made up of more than 80,000 individual pieces of porphyry, onyx and glass. The materials were brought from Rome and assembled here in 1268 by order of Henry III who had started re-building Edward the Confessor's Abbey in the new Gothic style in 1245.
    The Cosmati pavement is unique for the complexity and subtlety of its design and workmanship. The name 'cosmati' refers to the Italian family who specialised in this technique, and the idea of laying such a pavement in the Abbey probably came from Abbot Richard Ware, who went to Rome in 1258.
