Brand Profile/ Swash is the imaginative scarf collection from designers Sarah Swash and Toshio Yamanaka. The pair met while studying at Central Saint Martins in 2001 and joined forces to form Swash in 2004. Now based in East London, this daring duo is most often praised for their hand-drawn illustrations and wayward quirk. Creativity fuels their scarf production process from start to finish, which elevates their darling brand and enhances every product.
Noteworthy/ Swash’s greatest strengths are its idiosyncratic artwork and the fantastical themes that the brand explores each season. Swash scarves are made of silk and they feature digital prints of drawings— as if each collection’s color story wasn’t enough for our eyes to feast on. In 2005, Sarah and Toshio met their dog, Candy, who has since served as their good luck charm and a recurring character in the designers’ award-winning imagery.
