A Fusion of Art Conservation and Advocacy Unite in The World Elephant Scarf

We’re Weaving Wearable Art into a Tapestry of Elephant Conservation and Awareness.

We’re excited to share an extraordinary partnership that blends the world of art, conservation, and advocacy for the love we share for our cherished elephant population.

At the heart of this collaboration is Jodi Bager, the founder of SILK/SOIE Design Inc., whose four-decade dedication to the art of embroidery has resulted in the creation of the World Elephant Scarf. As it so happens, Jodi was trained at the Royal School of Needlework at Hampton Court Palace, masterfully weaving her passion for surface pattern art into this stunning wearable piece, which offers a unique way to champion elephant conservation.

The World Elephant Scarf is not an ordinary fashion accessory. It showcases an intricate embroidery design that took 1800 hours and nearly eight months to stitch. It’s literally a work of art that encapsulates the grace and resilience of elephant conservation and advocacy. Wearing the scarf is a potent symbol of dedication to elephant conservation, sparking meaningful conversations and serving as a tangible way to raise awareness and effect change.

The hand-embroidered canvas has been printed onto high-quality silk sourced directly from Jodi herself. The craftsmanship shines through in each detail, from the intricate embroidery to the carefully hand-rolled edges.

For a deeper understanding of the scarf’s creation process and its significance and to be among the first to access its sale launch, we invite you to connect with SILK/SOIE on Instagram @silksoiedesign and sign up for their newsletter by clicking here.

Proceeds from the World Elephant Scarf sale will be donated to Elephant Family and our vital conservation initiatives. With each purchase, you become a part of a global transformative movement that supports the preservation of rural communities, elephant families and our shared ecosystem.
