Bathers Cotton Scarf

Isabella Bunnell

Isabella Bunnell is one of a trio of textile designers invited to design a special print for Made In Glasgow by Local Heroes. Isabella is an illustrator and surface pattern designer living and working in Glasgow whose illustrations mix body-politics and bright colours with a sense of humour. For this special commission, her work can be enjoyed in the form of a square cotton voile scarf featuring a group of bathers enjoying a summer day.

“I love using bright colours and including humorous details in my work. Swimming is one of my favourite things to do, especially in the sea. I wanted this design to reflect the serenity you feel after bobbing around the waves and drying on a Scottish beach.”

Isabella’s line-drawings of ladies lounging on rocks or strolling along the beach are crisply printed on a soft peach background punctuated with blue and mustard yellow. The scarf is printed on cotton voile and is part of a trio produced by the team at The Glasgow School of Art’s Centre For Advanced Textiles (CAT). A perfect souvenir of Glasgow design and a practical and fun accessory.
