‘Battle of Britain’ is a stylish and unique silk pocket square with hand-sewn hem. It was created using artist Paul Nash's famous 'Battle of Britain' painting and is presented in a complimentary gift box.

Made in England. Printed and manufactured with hand-finishing in Macclesfield Cheshire, the traditional home of English silk printing. 

Design & Inspiration

 'Battle of Britain’ is a stylish and unique full-size silk pocket square and has been created using the famous aerial combat painting, 'Battle of Britain', by celebrated artist Paul Nash (1889-1946) in collaboration the Imperial War Museums (IWM). Nash had wide-ranging artistic and literary talents and was one of the most significant landscape painters of the first half of the 20th century. He is often remembered as a surrealist and war artist of both World Wars.

Dating from 1941, Nash’s original work was painted in oil on canvas and was one of four large works on the theme of aerial conflict commissioned from him by the War Artists’ Advisory Committee. The Chairman of the Committee, Kenneth Clark, recognised the allegorical nature of the painting, where it appears that defences rise out of the English landscape and attackers plummet to the earth that has defeated them.

The artwork is reproduced with a good balance of colour between the printed and reverse sides of the silk pocket square so works perfectly with any pocket square fold. The image is framed by the pocket square’s lilac blue border and cloud white hand-rolled & hand-sewn hem.

'Battle of Britain' is presented in a complimentary branded gift box with its blueberry-coloured lid and pale blue base. Inside each box, the high-quality aviation silk pocket square is tissue-wrapped and accompanied by a card telling the story of the artist and his vibrant artwork.

Size

Full-size silk pocket square, 42cm x 42cm (16.5” x 16.5”). Dimensions may vary slightly following the printing and manufacturing process as silk is a natural material.

Material Composition & Care

High-quality 100% Mulberry silk woven into 15oz silk twill gives the characteristic sheen and cool touch as well as ensuring the pocket square sits nicely in the top pocket.

Silk should always be dry cleaned. Avoid pressing the hand-finished hem to preserve its distinctive 'shoestring' shape.
