This scarf is made from silk crepe de chine. Crepe de Chine is a light and fine plain woven fabric produced either with all-silk warp and weft or else with a silk warp and hard-spun worsted weft. A crepe de Chine texture has a slightly crepe character, a feature produced by the use of weft, or filling, yarns spun with the twist running in reverse directions and known as right-hand and left-hand twist. During the finishing operation, because of the abnormal amount of twist in the picks of filling, these tend to untwist and recover their normal condition, thereby causing the characteristic effect of typical crepe de Chine
Our Dunmore Scotland scarf is designed specifically for our company and carries our Pineapple logo in one corner. It has been digitally printed and finished in the UK.
This elegant and fashionable silk scarf has a geometric print of elephants with a navy band surrounding the whole scarf. Made in only small numbers for Dunmore Scotland the Geometric Scarf is a unique accessory – a timeless design made to compliment any outfit worn in either the city or the country.
The production of silk originates in China in the Neolithic times. Silk remained confined to China until the Silk Road opened at some point during the later half of the 1st millennium BC. China maintained its virtual monopoly over silk production for another thousand years.
Silk cultivation eventually spread to Japan around 300 AD and the Crusades brought silk production to Western Europe, in particular to many Italian states, which saw an economic boom exporting silk to the rest of Europe.

Scotland has a rich heritage in textile manufacturing and this includes silk weaving. There were silk mills across the country and the silk for HM The Queen’s wedding and coronation dresses being woven in Dunfermline, Fife.
