Details

This lovely blue and gray batik silk scarf made from an upcycled sari imorted from Rajastan, India has the unusual added decoration of a sequined starburst. The silk is very lightweight and soft, suitable for spring and on into summer. The two color waves of blue and gray flow naturally together, creating a vibrant but subtle wash of color.

The word "sari" is derived from the Sanskrit meaning "strip of cloth," and the tribal gypsies of Rajastan make some of the most beautiful silks on earth. The history of these beautiful and graceful garments can be traced back to the Indus Valley civilization, which flourished from 2800-1800 BC in the western part of the Indian subcontinent. It is worn draped around the waist and over the shoulder, and there are many different ways of draping. A petticoat and blouse are usually worn underneath. Sari can be made of cotton, silk, or synthetic fabrics, in simple or elaborately embroidered designs.

Patchtique uses only pure silk sari, imported directly from India. After arrival in Seattle, the silk is carefully washed and dried. Then strips are cut to preserve the gradations of the colors and prints in each sari.

These scarves are light and soft enough to be worn inside, while at the same time the natural silk is quite warm against the skin. Once you have it on, you won't want to take it off!

Since this item is made from recycled fabric, there are some very minor flaws as seen in the photographs noted above. These should not affect usability. Great care has been taken to choose only the best cuts from the whole cloth.

Approximate length: 65"
Approximate width: 9"

Care: Dry cleaning recommended, or hand wash separately in cold water and air dry. Can be ironed to remove wrinkles.
