Bernarda's Dance Ornamental Black Scarf

$ 75.00

A striking Spanish woman dancing alone in her private patio comes to mind when contemplating the patterning and sheerness of this beautiful black scarf by 7 Sisters. 

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 72" x 12"

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
