This special, hand painted scarf was inspired by the elaborate jewelry and body art of the African Maasai tribe. I was mesmerized by their use of high contrasting, vivid colors against white, and the layers and layers of beaded and woven necklaces worn in ceremonial dress. The white is for peace, the blue for water, and the red for bravery.

There are four, large circular motifs on this scarf, each packed with vivid tones of reds, oranges, blues, greens and yellow against varied tones of earth browns, like necklaces laid out over a woven rug. Gold and copper metallic accents shimmer throughout and will catch your eye in the light, adding even more. The elborate amount of detail in each motif was extremely labor intensive, I loved every minute! I love the mosaic, or stained glass quality that it conveyed, and the bright, happy colors are complimented with the neutral browns.

This scarf would look great with browns, navy blues, and gold or copper jewelry, and of course, red lipstick! But any way you wear it, you are sure to sparkle and turn heads when you throw it on. The silk crepe de chine is light and soft enough to float in the wind, yet opaque enough to let the colors really shine.

Care Instructions:
Hand wash separately in cool water with a tea spoon of mild soap or shampoo. No bleach! The colors may bleed a little bit the first few times washed. When rinsing, add a few drops of Downey or hair conditioner to keep the the soft, silky feel. Roll scarf in a towel to remove excess water. Place an old pillow case over the damp silk and iron on the backside if necessary on a low setting while damp. Enjoy!

*All MUSE silk pieces are individually hand painted with love, therefore truly the only one of it's kind in the world! If cared for properly, this gorgeous flowing painting is a wise investment that will last a lifetime.
