Desert Journey Scarf

$ 100.00

Take your fashion accessories to a new and exotic place with the 7 Sisters’ Desert Journey scarf. 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 giving the scarf a rich earth tone color with unexpected floral elements that hint at the desert’s vibrancy.

Dimensions: 16” x 79”

Available in: Rust

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
