____________________________

This scarf or shawl is made of Uzbek ikat silk traditionally produced in Margilan, Ferghana Valley. This type of silk is called 'shoyi'; it is very thin (but strong) and weightless.

Silvery and golden threads make colors less bright creating a muted, almost frosted appearance - very sophisticated! These threads are not metallic; the scarf is pure silk, immensely smooth and cool to the touch. It is very difficult to photograph due to this ethereal shimmer, so it looks much better in real life, gleaming softly and whispering with every move of yours.

Uzbek silk may be less famous than Thai silk - to a large extent due to the isolation of the country in the Soviet Union time - but it is not less beautiful, although they are different. Ikat patterns are somewhat reminiscent of what you can see in Mexican fabrics. Please click the photos to see larger size.

Its size is 170 x 44 cm (67 x 17 inches) without fringe.

The hems are meticulously finished by me with a delicate machine stitch. As a rule, Uzbek silk scarves come unfinished, and just have a fringe, but no stitch to protect the edges. I prefer to finish the edges with a thin silk thread to feel confident that the scarf will last.

Please dry clean or hand wash it in cold water with a mild detergent.

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