Tien-Shan Snow Scarf

$ 75.00

Imagine traveling high into the mountains of Kyrgyzstan to witness the vast glaciers that coat the Alpine-like Tien-Shan mountain range. This scarf celebrates what is called ‘Heavenly Mountain’ with its exquisite patterning that seems to travel along the textile like glacial movement. The process of creating this piece is time-consuming and utilizes the “Ala-kiyiz,” a traditional technique that includes handwork in wool and silk layering, water rolling and finally dyeing to achieve the elegant tones you see. Slight imperfections in the natural silk and minor color variations are inherent in this handcrafted technique.

Dimensions: 12” x 79”

Available in: Winter White

Care: Dry clean only
