Lacquer Collection

For a long time I've been wanting to expand the choices of my scarf and shawl rings, and to offer them in a range of high quality lacquer in beautiful colors.

In the beginning, I thought the process of lacquering would also be a wonderful way to rescue horn or wood rings which, although perfect in shape and craftsmanship, came in colors that fell out of the color families. But during the research, tests and trials it became clear that the lacquer collection would become much more than a rescue operation... the exquisite quality of lacquer with it's high polished finishes and fantastic color possibities make them a fresh and modern companion for our scarves, and perfect to compliment/expand the natural shades of the horn and wood collection. 

It took a long time finding lacquer artists who could produce the outstanding quality I was looking for. Many more trials to get the colors right followed. They had to be more than just beautiful shades, but also to be versatile enough to blend in easily with the various colors surrounding them (see examples with scarves below). I am so happy to finally be able to bring you the MT scarf and shawl ring lacquer collection, currently available in seven colors:

Vert Sapin





Clay





Taupe



Bordeaux





Ivoire





Vieux Rose





Bleu Canard





Rouge Noir





Purple





Bleu Marine





The base of the lacquered rings are exquisitely hand made horn or wood rings from my collection.

Lacquered items have an extremely smooth, hard and durable surface. To ensure that your lacquered scarf and shawl rings keep their perfect shine, and to protect them from surface scratches, please store them in the velvet pouch they come with. Also note that lacquer might chip if dropped from a height onto a hard surface.

  2. Dear MaiTai,

    Thank you for providing prompt, accurate service, amazing communication and a perfect product! I could not be more thrilled with my shawl ring, which arrived sooner than I had expected, was packaged in a lovely manner and suits both my shawl and scarves. I was initially referred to you by my friend, Elaine, who raved about your product...she was correct!
    Thank you so very much,
    ~Lorainne

  8. Dearest Mai Tai,
    I'm trying to order both the lacquer and the rosewood Anneau rings. The drop box doesn't allow me to choose any wood rings, only the lacquer and black horn. Are you still carrying the wood rings? Thank you!
