VINVERA X HELEN RUTH

For Vinvera’s very first design, Vinda wanted to create something that represents the project’s core values and ideas. This design was created with Scottish scarf designer Helen Ruth.

Helen as a designer, graduated from Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen with a first class honours degree in textile design in 2008.  She followed that success by winning that year’s Como/ Texprint scarf design competition and working in Como, Italy. Como is the heart of the silk printing industry, designing prints for the fashion industry.

When did it start

Through Beyond Scarf - a curated scarf boutique based in Calgary, Canada - Helen Ruth and Vinda have forged a strong professional relationship, and on a visit to Scotland in 2018, they began discussing a collaborative scarf.

The design has finally launched in October 2021. Yes, all good things take sometime to develop :)

Design

The scarf features beautiful, colourful butterflies in flight across a map of the world. It emphasises connecting people across the globe to work together and create lasting, meaningful works of art — much like how Vinda and Helen Ruth were brought together by their love for scarves.
