I found this vintage silk scarf in a small shop selling vintage fabrics. Made in Uzbekistan of Uzbek mulberry silk.

It is made of crepe de chine, off white in color, with creamy overtones (yes, I do find something pearl-like in this softly glowing silk), a subdued sheen and long flowing fringe. It is heavenly smooth and cool to the touch.

This is a statement piece. The fringe is amazingly long and curly like Mongolian lamb or Alpaca fur. its shade is slightly different from the main color; it has a gray tint whereas the scarf itself is cream. The scarf is gorgeous, wild, elegant, barbarian and unique.

The scarf is square, 33 x 33 inches (84 x 84 cm), not counting the fringe.

It is new old stock. Must be 40-50 years old, but still beautiful - possibly even more beautiful than before. It was made of locally produced silk, here in Uzbekistan, and was stored in someone's chest for all these years.

You could wear the scarf as it is, or you could paint it, upcycle it, teastain or turn into something completely different - you choose. It will still keep its noble nature, whatever the shape is.

The years of imprisonment, however, left some signs on the silk. In the third photo you can see (I assume you can, although I have difficulties seeing them) three very faint stains in the shade of tea. Does not take away from its beauty, in my view.


PLEASE NOTE:

We can custom make pillow covers, scarves or clothing (or about anything of Uzbek silk and cotton) for you, in desired size and color.

...In the last picture you can see me buying vintage silks in Bukhara, one of the most beautiful cities of the Orient and an important part of the Great Silk Road. We are based in Uzbekistan, and due to that we have direct access to wonderful silk fabrics, both vintage or modern.
