French Silk Scarf offers only silk (soie) vintage scarves from France. The occasional neckerchief may join the club or the odd pocket square, all in fabulous silk of course.

All our items are cleaned before being uniquely and beautifully packaged prior to sending.

We have a particular passion for scarves from the 1950s & 60s, with their hand rolled and sewn edges and uniqueness of design. The quality of silk from this era is superb, wonderfully thick (for silk).

The 1970s & 80s tend towards finer silks, raw and chiffon. More delicate in style, but still wonderfully long lasting.

Antique scarves tend toward more texture, whether in the silk or the design.

We classify anything below 65 cm (25.5 inches) as a neckerchief and below 40 cm (16 inches) as a pocket square. Both of which make great hair ties or purse accessories, too.

We are always seeking the unique, the unusual and those that are particularly special, to offer you in our shop.

Did you know there are more than 50 ways (maybe even 100) to tie a scarf?

A scarf is an opportunity to wear art. It packages up small and is easily transportable. It can be the colours that pull and outfit together, or a statement against a monochrome background. A scarf has such versatility in how it's worn, whether a man or woman. It is the ultimate accessory.
