A journey of great distance starts with a single step. I have begun experimenting (though this is a side hobby to add to the existing collection of pocket squares we make) to hand-dye, distress and paint on silk pocket squares which have been hand-rolled in Sydney. Through a process of drying, steaming, heating and so on I am spending my quieter time of the year researching the art of painting on silk. It has been a lot of fun so far. These are not to detract from our normal range of pocket squares which will be finished over the coming weeks, but they are one offs, made by me, and I will put them on the website. So, say I became famous, you could say one day 'you know, I once paid near nothing for that guys first designs. I paid for his R & D, but look what it's worth now!'
