Silk Scarf Shawls

 

Paracas Alpaca and Silk Scarf
Paracas Alpaca and Silk Scarf
(Based on 1 review)
Category: Clothing/Accessories/Scarves and Shawls

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.

Throughout Southeast Asia, the dupatta is one of the most versatile items in a woman’s wardrobe. The simple scarf can be worn over the head, draped around the neck, or folded over one shoulder. It accompanies saris, evening dresses, and suits alike. Our handwoven silk scarf is equally adaptable, and features a classic hand-screened paisley pattern in royal blue over an orange background.

Vintage Kimono Silk Scarf
Vintage Kimono Silk Scarf
(Based on 1 review)
Category: Clothing/Accessories/Scarves and Shawls

Silk swatches from vintage Japanese kimono are pieced together to create this elegant one-of-a-kind piece of cultural history. Each swatch carries with it the story of its former life—perhaps as a furisode that was worn to a wedding, or the shorter haori worn over a kimono. Harmonious patterns in shades of red are pieced together and trimmed with black silk. As these are made from vintage kimono, colors and patterns will vary. Please see alternate product images for examples.

Women in a textile workshop in Nepal's Kathmandu Valley take scraps of silk left from the production of saris and weave them into a uniquely textured yarn. Knit or crocheted, they transform what would otherwise be discarded into cozy winter accessories that brighten the dreariest days. This set is decorated with beads and traditional mirrorred disks that are intended to ward off the evil eye.

Archaeologists call the period between 1475 and 1532 Peru’s Late Horizon. Most smaller civilizations had become part of the Inca Empire, which dominated the region in the pre-Columbian era. Architecture, ceramics, and textile arts flourished. The gold and red geometric pattern of this soft baby alpaca and silk scarf is inspired by a woven sling from the Late Horizon period.

Paisley Silk and Cashmere-Blend Scarf
Paisley Silk and Cashmere-Blend Scarf

Category: Clothing/Accessories/Scarves and Shawls

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.

Washed-silk Yo-yo Scarf
(Got it? Rate it.)
Category: Clothing/Accessories/Scarves and Shawls

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.
