Ancestral Legend Scarf

$ 160.00

Just as family stories and legends are deeply rooted in culture, so is the stunning and sophisticated Ancestral Legend scarf by 7 Sisters. Made through “Ala-kiyiz,” the traditional technique of combining delicate, airy silk with two layers of felted Kyrgyz wool, the design is patterned, cut from the felted wool and layered onto the silk. Once rolled and immersed in soapy water, the felt adheres to the silk and the eye-catching piece is dyed giving the scarf a contrast reminiscent of lore that is spoken while women weave rich textiles. Slight imperfections and color variations are inherent in this handmade piece and add to its charm.  

This scarf is made of two layers with two different shades of grey.

Dimensions: 24” by 79”

Available in: Grey

Care: Dry clean only



"People buying our products carry with them a part of our culture and the warmth of our hands, love and blessings." - Farzana Sharshembieva of 7 Sisters, Kyrgyzstan
