Sinuous stems, sprouting pops of acacia yellow flowers and dashed with the various greens of sickle leaves, this piece is grounded by the earthy tones of woody roots.
An expansive square of meticulously designed pure silk. Tightly woven and luxuriously smooth, the vibrant colours pop with a subtle sheen. Refined edges inhibit fray and make the square look great no matter how it is folded and worn.
We encourage you to pair your pocket square with anything you wish. Traditionally, works well as a contrast piece on black and grey jackets. Tweeds within the brown spectrum also pair exceptionally well with the tones.

Acacia pycnantha known alternatively as the Golden Wattle are a set of Australasian shrubs and trees known for their eponymous golden appearance. is a tree native to south-eastern Australia. It typically grows to a height of 8 metres with trees of up to 12 metres high reported in Morocco. The profuse fragrant, golden flowers appear in late winter and spring, followed by long seed pods. The wattle has appearances in other regions, such as Africa – however it was determined that they were less closely related than first assumed. Subsequently, the Australasian lineage of wattle was renamed.
Acacia pycnantha was made the official floral emblem of Australia in 1988, and has been featured on the country’s postal stamps.
Golden wattle has been grown in temperate regions around the world for the tannin in its bark, as it provides the highest yield of all wattles. The scented flowers have been used for perfume making, and honey production in humid areas.
Used frequently by aboriginal Australians, their seeds were harvested to be ground into flour for paste or baked into cakes. Wattle timbers were often utilised as instruments, fuel and implements – with global economic coverage. Wattle bark is a pivotal component in the tanning process and was widely exported to Europe in the 19th century.
Species of acacia are cultivated as ornamental garden plants, and even mentioned in an ancient Egyptian proverb referred to by Amenhotep II, “If you lack a gold battle-axe inlaid with bronze, a heavy club of acacia wood will do?”.
