R.Culturi X Saddo – The Guitarist Wool & Silk Pocket Square

$79.00

This illustration is of an African woman playing the electric guitar, for the simple reason that you really do not see many black women guitarists in mainstream music.  The first that may pop into mind is Sister Rosetta Tharpe, who is one of the precursors of rock and roll.  There are also awesome guitarists like Lady Bo (sometimes called “Queen Mother of Guitar”), Bo Diddley’s lead guitarist, Odetta, who influenced folk singers like Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Janis Joplin; and Elizabeth Cotten, who developed a unique left-handed style of playing the guitar, also known as “Cotten picking”.  The image seen here was derived from the influence felt and heard through their music.

Artwork by Saddo.

  • Original, hand-drawn pencil artwork created exclusively for the R. Culturi collection.
  • Reproduced on a soft 60% wool / 40% silk fabric for a fuller, slightly heavier hand and more reserved color palette.
  • Newly sized at 16.5 x 16.5 in (42 x 42cm) and using a medium-weight wool/silk mix, this pocket square creates beautiful folds and won’t fall into or bulge out of your breast pocket.
  • Hand-rolled and hand-stitched hems add the luxurious detailing that top European makers are known for.
  • Crafted from start to finish by a family-owned mill in Como, Italy.
