This listing would look beautiful as a set with our Pink Crocheted Beaded Necklace by Ecuadorian, EWI member artist, Mercedes: http://www.etsy.com/listing/83615859/ecuadorian-crocheted-pink-beaded
With every scarf ordered, we will include handouts on the history of hand-painted silk scarves, as well as the process that Rabia goes through to create one of her beautiful works of art.
Scarves are baked in the oven for 15-20 minutes so the dyes set; this assures that the colors will neither fade nor bleed. All of Rabia's scarves are machine washable and safe to dry clean.

* To purchase this item as a present and have it gift-wrapped free of charge (you can also indicate this in the Message to Seller).
There are multiple unique scarves available, however it is impossible for them to be *exactly* identical, since each one is individually hand painted by Rabia. This means there may be very slight differences in design, but these will hardly be noticeable and all colors and motifs are the same.
