Artisans in rural Thailand use silk left over from the making of ceremonial and festive clothing to create this one-of-a-kind yo-yo scarf. Each piece begins as a circle of fabric, which is hand-sewn into a three-dimensional “bud” and then connected edge to edge. No two scarves will be exactly alike.


Made in Thailand. 100% washed silk. 3 1/2"W x 80"L.

The designer who creates this lavish silk and cashmere-blend scarf draws inspiration from her collection of 250 antique, hand-carved wood printing blocks. For centuries, block-printed textiles have been a specialty of Indian artisans, especially in the northern part of the country. Here, rather than using the blocks as stamps in the traditional method, the designer traced some of her favorite patterns and created a serigraph of paisley and florals in azure hues. Made using an equal blend of silk and cashmere, the resulting scarf is supremely soft and drapes luxuriously.

The Paracas culture flourished in present-day Peru from the seventh to the first century B.C. When archaeologists discovered the Great Paracas Necropolis on the Pacific coast in the 1920s, it included a remarkably preserved woven textile, colored with natural dyes, featuring winged supernatural figures. The geometric garments worn by those shamanic figures are the inspiration for our ultrasoft baby alpaca and silk scarf, which uses similar earth-toned colors.

Silk swatches from vintage Japanese kimono are pieced together to create this elegant one-of-a-kind piece of cultural history.
