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.

Sixties Stained Glass
This early sixties fabric makes me imagine a modern stained glass window design. It has various patterns embedded in an overall honeycomb design, in shades of earthy oranges and browns, though the design itself is not very earthy. The fabric is a very soft satin weave cotton. I backed this with plain black satin weave cotton. Cotton on cotton makes for a great "all-weather" scarf. Thanks to my friend Pamela for modeling this one.
