The iconic navy and white stripes of our Mariner Scarf is based on a pattern originally intended for deep sea fishermen in Breton, but that has since been adopted by seafarers and yachtsmen across the ages. It is based on the sweater originally worn by “marchand d’ail,” sellers of garlic and onions who sailed from Brittany to England with their wares. Eventually the French Navy adopted the tight-knit design, but only sailors and new recruits wore stripes—officers alone were permitted to wear solid colors.


Made in France, near Mont Saint-Michel in Normandy, by Saint James, the oldest manufacturer of nautical wear and supplier of the French Navy since 1889.


Made in France. 100% wool. 61" x 7 1/2"


Hand wash recommended.

Our handsome herringbone-patterned wool scarf is designed and woven by a husband-and-wife team in their County Clare workshop, using an antique Hattersley Domestic loom from the early 1900s. These narrow machines, made in Yorkshire, England, of cast-iron, leather, and wood, are especially suited to weaving scarves because they create two naturally reinforced selvedge edges, rather than the cut and sewn edges found on industrially woven scarves.
