Iris Scarf in Blue & White

SKU: MASC008

$75

This exquisitely designed indigo scarf with contrasting white embroidery is a perfect accessory for cooler weather. Made from 100% wool, it is surprisingly light and silky soft. Our artisans use a traditional technique dating from the 13th century in its creation. Employing this age-old process, each scarf is knotted by hand rather than woven in the typical fashion. Afterwards, each piece is hand embroidered to create a stunning look with decadent detail.

ARTISANS AND THEIR CRAFT

Textiles

In Kashmir, India’s northernmost and most majestic and mountainous state, a group of women artisans are contemporizing traditional crewel embroidery that resembles crochet and dates back to the 1400s.  Textiles of all kinds – scarves, bedding, sheets, clothing – are enhanced with this hook stitch in traditional motifs and brilliant colors.  The designs are stenciled on paper before being transferred to the fabric and are then hand-embroidered.
