We are delighted to announce the launch of an exciting collaboration with the The Royal Automobile Club in the design and crafting of a limited edition luxury scarf, beautifully illustrated and crafted on pure mulberry silk, which will be available for members to purchase.
This unique design was inspired by one of the most iconic areas within the exclusive Pall Mall clubhouse, the swimming pool. As with all creations, this scarf design began with hand drawn illustrations and paintings which evolved into this unique, silk piece.
The Club was founded in 1897 by motoring pioneers and has two magnificent clubhouses, in London and Epsom that offers first-class facilities and a busy programme of sports, events and other activities to members and their families.
The club’s origins date back to 1895 however, his Majesty King Edward VII decreed in 1907 that the Automobile Club of Great Britain should henceforth be known as the ‘Royal Automobile Club’. Simultaneously, he afforded the Club the rare honour of using his profile on the Club badge. The organisation which incorporated a breakdown and repairs service RAC Motoring Services was sold in 1998 and today has approximately 12 million members.
Today, the Club strives to remain one of the foremost private members’ clubs in the world and aims to provide their 17,000-strong membership with a first-class service offering high-quality accommodation, dining, recreation, sports facilities and an extensive events programme for the enjoyment of its members and their guests. As the longest-standing motoring institution in the UK, the Club respects the aims of its founders and seeks to promote the best interests of motorists and motor sports at every opportunity.
Talking about the collaboration, Jag Sihra elaborated: “It has been a great honour to have collaborated with the prestigious Royal Automobile Club and design this bespoke silk scarf. To enter the iconic Pall Mall building and immerse myself in the historic interiors was a pleasure in itself. It was easy to be inspired by the sheer beauty and heritage of the club and we are thrilled to be able to share the story behind the beautiful piece that we have created together.”
