A Scarf Like No Other:
No place makes silk scarves better than Northern Italy. That's why for this piece of art, making an heirloom quality scarf meant finding quality crafters that have been doing this for generations. This region was particularly hard hit by the pandemic over this last year. As a result, working together feels like a perfect way to support artisans that have been crafting silk scarves for generations. We hope you agree.
Only a small quantity of these square scarves were made. They are 100% silk with a twill weave and handsewn edges. The hand sewn edges require superior craftmanship. Anyone who has sewn with silk will tell you: it is a notoriously tricky fabric to work with. These scarves came out simply gorgeous.Perfect as a gift or keepsake.
