This long exquisite Silk Scarf is decorated with hand-drawn animals in Black and White. The design of the silk scarf is brought together with a black border.
Made in the finest 100% silk crepe de chine, this is a scarf to be worn with any outfit in any colour and in both the city or the country. The neutral tones mean it can be worn with a wide variety of colours, making it the perfect multi-tasking accessory. The scarf was designed specifically for Dunmore Scotland and has our Dunmore Pineapple logo in the corner.
Crepe de Chine is a light and fine plain woven fabric produced either with all-silk warp and weft 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 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 condition, thereby causing the characteristic effect of typical crepe de Chine
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.
