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.

A delicate bamboo print in red and blue with gold highlights drifts across fine cream colored silk on this vintage fabric that is probably Japanese. I backed it with lightweight blue wool. I think the wool is what is called challis: it's not scratchy at all. This scarf is reminiscent of an obi but is soft and pliable, unlike obis which are very stiff and can't be worn as scarves. The photo features our new model named Crystal.
