In Australia and other countries of the Commonwealth, we recognise the red poppy (the Flanders’ poppy) as the commemorative flower of remembrance. The flower reminds us of those who lost their lives or suffered in wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations. It's a tradition that began in the early 1900s, after World War I.
"During the First World War, red poppies were among the first plants to spring up in the devastated battlefields of northern France and Belgium. In soldiers' folklore, the vivid red of the poppy came from the blood of their comrades soaking the ground.
The sight of poppies on the battlefield at Ypres in 1915 moved Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae to write the poem In Flanders fields. In English literature of the nineteenth century, poppies had symbolised sleep or a state of oblivion; in the literature of the First World War a new, more powerful symbolism was attached to the poppy – the sacrifice of shed blood." source

The environmental impact of real silk ranks higher than almost all other fibres, mainly due to its global warming potential and use of fossil fuels chiefly in the reeling and processing stages. This scarf is made of 'vegan silk', using fabricated microfibre yarns to create a silk-like, more environmental-friendly alternative. Furthermore, it is printed with high-quality carcinogen-free Italian pigment inks. No cancer-causing chemicals and undesirable surfactants.
