  • Rampley & Co is a London based company specializing in premium quality pocket squares. The silk is very soft with rich colors and finely rolled edges. They mostly use carefully selected paintings from various artists as motifs for their pocket squares. 

    William John Swainson (8 October 1789 - 6 December 1855) was an English artist, naturalist and ornithologist and is often best remembered for the quality of his zoological illustrations. He was also the first illustrator and naturalist to adopt lithography with the monochrome lithographic prints in his books being hand coloured and it was use of this approach along with his natural talent at illustration that led to his fame.

    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.
