    This pocket square is inspired by a number of magnificent paintings from India in the British Museum’s collection. 

    The centrepiece features a man sitting on top of an elephant with two mahouts and female attendants walking alongside, from a gouache painting on paper in the Jaipur style, from India, c.1750. The border features four noblewomen playing a game of polo on horseback, from a gouache painting on paper in the Bundi style, from India, c.1750.

    The wonderful thing about printed paintings on pocket squares is that they can produce a number of different effects depending on how they are folded and creates a great topic for conversation once pulled out of the breast pocket.
