GIANT BAMBOO DESIGN

The Giant Bamboo design is part of the Hortus by Night 2019 Autumn collection. ‘Hortus by Night’ is an annual event at the Hortus Botanicus Amsterdam which I visited in January 2019. All trees and plants were illuminated by hundreds of lights in different magical colours.

From painting to pattern

The whole experience was so inspiring that I had enough ideas to paint a total of twelve paintings. These paintings became the patterns with which I have created two different collections:

The Hortus by Night 2019 Autumn collection consist of five different designs:

All five Hortus by Night designs represent a different continent. Just like a botanical garden with plants and trees from all over the world. I wanted to represent all continents in this autumn collection.

Today the spotlight is on the bestseller of this season: the Giant Bamboo design. This design represents America. In America everything is huge and so is the bamboo.

The blues in this design go from turquoise to aqua and from night blue to teal.

Giant Bamboo cashmere scarf

I was going to write something like ‘if blue is your favourite colour this is your go-to design’ and obviously it is to a bunch of people.

That’s the reason the scarfs are out of stock until January 2020 (I know, huge bummer).
Even so it’s good to know you can wear it with cobalt, emerald and petrol, it all works! But you all knew that already of course 🙂

Icy conditions ahoy! I have been told it works perfectly with brown sofas but I’m also digging this one on dark grey.

Matching glass jewel by Studio Glashelder

The matching ring designed by Studio Glashelder has the perfect combo of black and blue. I particularly like its round-ish shape in contrast with the straight bamboo branches. Feels like a crescent bamboo moon.

SPONSORSHIP DE HORTUS AMSTERDAM

Botanical gardens are The Fran Zone’s number one source of inspiration. And that’s why I have come up with a sponsorship of de Hortus in Amsterdam. When you buy a scarf or cushion from the new Hortus by Night Collection you will support the building of the new Three Climate Glasshouse in de Hortus.

The Fran Zone will donate €20,- for every sold scarf and €10,- for every sold cushion. This sponsorship is endorsed by de Hortus itself and gives you the opportunity to support de Hortus and their terrific work while at the same time treat yourself with a botanical inspired scarf or cushion.

CASHMERE SCARVES HORTUS BY NIGHT COLLECTION

The extra large cashmere scarves of the Hortus by Night Autumn Collections are your best friend this season. Wear them around your neck, as a cape, a turban, headwrap or with your favourite autumn coat.

Cashmere is woolen royalty. It is one of the most comfortable fabrics to wear directly on your skin. Cashmere is soft, supple and voluminous. On top of that it adjusts to the climate. When it’s cold cashmere will keep you warm. If you’re caught up in an unexpected warm autumn day cashmere will feel comfortably light.
