Why the Scarf Moment? Despite Global Warming winter is still cold, and we all want to look good and stay warm. And these scarves are a perfect vehicle for recycling and reusing. They are made from vintage fabrics and some are even repurposed from vintage clothing. I back the vintage fabrics with new silk, wool, cotton and linen. My scarves are great for people who are wool sensitive since the wool scarves have a layer of silk or cotton on the reverse. The Scarf Moment is warmth with style.

Masha is wearing a scarf sewn from vintage Marimekko fabric that came from a duvet that I found in an antiques shipment from Denmark. I took apart the old duvet and cut the fabric into strips to make scarves. The print was designed in 1965 by Maija Isola: it's called Maalaisruusu. It seems to be available again but not in this color. 100% cotton, backed with black linen. A great weight for spring or fall.
