The¬†coastal taipan¬†(Oxyuranus scutellatus), or¬†common taipan,¬†is a¬†species¬†of large, highly¬†venomous snake¬†of the family¬†Elapidae. It is native to the coastal regions of northern and eastern¬†Australia¬†and the island of¬†New Guinea. According to most¬†toxicological studies, this species is the third-most¬†venomous land snake¬†in the world.
Perhaps it‚Äôs an odd arc of patriotism but we can‚Äôt help but be inspired by the deadly beauties that inhabit our great island home. The ‚ÄòCoastal Taipan‚Äô is no exception. The shock of brilliant blue silk interweaved amongst the earthy tones give this textile an unexpected distinction. Neutral in appeal, this jacket can be styled for both formal and casual occasions. ¬†
