Honeysuckle Scarf in White & Red

SKU: MASC010

$75

This beautifully handcrafted scarf is a true masterpiece. 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. The contrasting coral embroidery adds another level of decadence to this simple, yet timeless design.

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.
