This classic design features a large pineapple surrounded by the Greek key design with smaller pineapples and Palmetto Palms around the border. The colors are lighter for summer with gold, ecru, and shades of tan, all trimmed in black. The story of the pineapple revolves around seafaring captains from east coast ports including Charleston, who would impale fresh pineapples -- souvenirs of their lengthy travels to tropical ports -- atop the porch railings of their homes when they returned. It was a symbol then that the man of the house was home -- albeit briefly -- and receiving visitors. The pineapple is still visible today in the architecture and interior décor at homes throughout the South Carolina Lowcountry as a universal symbol of welcome. 

This scarf is delivered in our deluxe gift box, signed by the artist, and includes an insert with the nautical history leading to it becoming the symbol of “welcome” throughout many port cities.
