Designed by Emily May for the Isobel Wylie Hutchison Collection, Carlowrie Castle
The design is inspired by Isobel’s passion and determination to do exactly what she wanted in a time when the expectations of her sex were something quite different.
The scarf is split diagonally into two parts, her life as an explorer in the blue arctic wilds, accompanied by sledges and dogs, and her home life at Carlowrie Castle.
A compass is at the heart of the image, drawing Isobel in different directions that reflected the different aspects of her lifestyle and personality. The floral specimens Isobel collected surround the design, pulling the narrative together.
