Switzerland’s national flower, the Edelweiss (Leontopodium alpinum) is a beautiful and rare mountain flower found in altitudes between 1800 to 3000 meters. Often called the Queen of Mountain Flowers, the Edelweiss is a small white wooly flower that blooms bravely in the mountains under harsh conditions. In Alpine folklore there are many stories of brave young men climbing steep cliffs to pick an Edelweiss for their beloved. The Edelweiss is synonymous with the Alps and with summers.
To celebrate this rare and beautiful flower, we created a special summer collection of Shava silk scarves. For you to enjoy this enduring symbol of Switzerland.
