“This scarf was hand-woven in Durban, South Africa, and my Mum brought it back for me – she was visiting there. I’ve had it for 15 years. It’s made of wool and it’s become softer with use. It’s not necessarily something I would’ve chosen for myself but that doesn’t matter. It’s also really warm.
“I just love it, and it has travelled with me to Japan; I always take it with me when I’m travelling. There’s something so normal about it, and functional. I love the colour. When I put it around me, just say I’m travelling or meditating, it feels like having my mother’s embrace.”
