Aitolkun Scarf Rust

$ 120.00

The Aitolkun scarf is made using the traditional “Ala-kiyiz” technique which combines delicate, airy silk with two layers of felted Kyrgyz wool. The strong pattern that decorates the interior of the scarf is inspired by a regal eagle with its wings spread wide. The pattern is cut from wool and layered carefully onto the silk, after a hand rolled water process the artist uses dyes to complement the detail and patterns. Slight imperfections in the natural silk and minor color variations are inherent in this handcrafted technique.

Dimensions Approximately: 24" x 78"

Aitolkun Scarf Available in: Mint Green and Rust

Care: Dry clean only
