NEW Airy luxury linen scarf adds a bit of chic to any look. Meticulously handwoven and finished with off-white stripe and eyelash fringe, it is both classic and versatile.
Linen is a luxury textile because it is so labor intensive to produce. It is not elastic, so weaving with linen thread is very difficult, but the end result is a fabric with a natural texture that will last forever. It is one the oldest and strongest fibers in the world and linen is also one of the most sustainable materials because all parts of the plant can be used and nothing is wasted.
- Material: 100% Linen
- Measurements: 79" x 17"
- Color: Flax/Off-White
From the spinning of the thread to the weaving of the fabric, the process is done entirely by hand. The skill of hand spinning is passed down from mother to daughter and most rural women spin at their homes for extra income.
As with all handcrafted goods, there are slight variations making each piece a work of art and truly one of a kind.
