Eastern Butterfly Scarf

$ 220.00

The Eastern Butterfly scarf is made using the traditional “Ala-kiyiz” technique which combines delicate, airy silk with two layers of felted Kyrgyz wool. This striking pattern in black and white is fashion-forward and reminiscent of the beautiful elusive winged creature. 7 Sisters cuts the pattern from wool and carefully, layers them onto the silk, hand-rolls the textiles in soapy water to fuse them, and finally dyes the textile to complement the detail and patterns. Slight imperfections in the natural silk and minor color variations are inherent in this handcrafted technique.

Dimensions: 24" x 79"

Available in: Black/White

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
