Personal Pet Portrait Scarf Project
The Personal Pet Portrait Scarf Project aren’t just scarves, no: they are bespoke treasures in which your pet has the main role. Machteld Schouten will paint a realistic portrait of your pet, inlcuding his or hers personal accessories (like toys, a leash or treats) with acrylics on canvas. The design for the carreés; the embellished trims, colorscheme and your pet’s name is also from Schouten’s hand, matched to the portrait.

The final design for the scarf is digitally printed on a 100% natural cloth of your choice and will be wrapped in a deluxe giftbox. That’s not all. If you place an order, for yourself or to gift to a friend; you’ll receive the original painting as well. A Personal Pet Portrait scarf will keep your pet close to your heart forever.

A Personal Pet Portrait scarf is made to order only.
