Oriental Designs

We find inspiration for our scarves in the rich and iconic architecture of India. From one of the new seven wonders of the world ‘Taj Mahal’ to the ancient caves, temples, forts and palaces – these monuments tell many stories. And so do the oriental designs of our scarves which are inspired from them.

Two worlds

The design DNA of Elephant Cross is rooted in both Indian and Swiss culture. In our products we strive to bring together the distinctive design evolution of the east and the minimalistic clean design thinking of the west.

Our scarf inspired from “Mandala”, which represents the universe in Hinduism

Colourful Celebrations

India has always been a country that is known for its diverse yet unified and colourful spirit. For many people its culture, traditions, festivals, food, architecture and geography seem like a page out of an ancient folk tale. Colours are an essential part of life in India.

In our collections, we take inspirations from the colourful spirit of India and make it relevant for the global audience.

Inspiration for our colourful scarves – the Holi festival in India.
