This is a silk square scarf that shouts out to be commented upon. A stunning silk scarf with Parrots. The colours are vibrant and this is definitely “a Statement” scarf. Made from 100% beautiful Twill Silk and designed especially for Dunmore Scotland, it is unique and glamorous and would add zing to any outfit day or night. This scarf is made of silk twill. The twill weave is very fine and can be felt when running your fingers slowly over the face of the material. It is a thin and light fabric, which has a beautiful drape. The taut nature gives this silk a slightly solid finish, and the natural silk fibers gives the face a gentle luster.
Hand drawn parrots in bright red sit well with the lime green centre on this silk twill scarf. It also has our Dunmor Pineapple logo in the corner of the scarf.
Wear it in a variety of ways or even draped around your handbag – this is a scarf for any occasion.
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.
