This fusion of our much-loved Smaug and Oakenshield patterns features the fearsome dragon in fiery colours against a background that transitions from a hint of black coffee to deep, rich burgundy, and finally fading to vibrant bright reds. The characteristic nubs and slubs of the silk weft that speckle the fabric resemble the sparkle from the shields that Smaug sits atop.
Beneath the great beast Elven script translates as, "My teeth are swords; my claws are spears! My wings are a hurricane." This iconic quote, spoken by Smaug himself, echoes the dragon's immense power and the unstoppable force he represents and the challenge facing Thorin and his company.

Smaug is the fearsome dragon who ousted King Thrór and the Dwarves of Erebor within the Lonely Mountain. Smaug was "the greatest of the dragons of his day", after driving the Dwarves out of the Mountain he remained for the next 150 years guarding his hoard before the arrival of Thorin Oakenshield and co. to oust him with the help of Bilbo and Gandalf.
This illustrative design was based on the wonderful descriptions of Smaug in The Hobbit, with his fiery red scales and magnificently menacing features. Intricate scales cascade down Smaug's back as a fireball erupts from his awesomely powerful jaws, falling across his wings in an incomparable depiction of the mighty beast slain by the Bard at Laketown.
"My armour is like tenfold shields, my teeth are swords, my claws spears, the shock of my tail is a thunderbolt, my wings a hurricane, and my breath death!" - Smaug.
