Baghdad Blue Scarf

$ 75.00

The stunning blue in this scarf will have you thinking of visits to the desert and memories of the kind of blues found in Middle Eastern architecture and tiling. 

Meticulously made through the traditional technique “Ala-kiyiz,” the artists combine delicate, airy silk with two layers of felted Kyrgyz wool. Once the design is patterned the felted wool is cut and layered onto the silk. It is then rolled and immersed in soapy water to adhere to the silk. Finally, it is dyed to give it its color.

Dimensions: Approximately 10” x 70”

Care: Dry clean only
