A colourful silk scarf featuring a print of nine different Koi varieties, on a beautiful flowing silk chiffon.
135 x 135cm (ca. 53×53 in), can be worn wrapped around neck or long and floating.
A large silk chiffon scarf is a great accessory to use all year round, as it is lightweight and not bulky. It can be worn long and floaty, or wrapped around the neck, draped over a simple evening dress, or wrapped around bare shoulders on a breezy evening… The fine fabric and burst of colours make it a statement piece day or night. The variety of colours combine well with either neutrals or other colours, so this scarf is very versatile and ideal for transitional temperatures.
Koi carp are wildly popular in Japan, China, and many other parts of the world, believed to promote peace of mind and attract prosperity. The colours are the actual colours of the koi breeds. They are Sanke, Kigoi, Asagi, Tancho, Kumonryu, Matsuba, Utsuri, Goromo and Soragoi. The scarf print is based on a monochrome indian ink drawing.

Care: Steam to refresh and remove creases. Dry clean (Silk is naturally dirt- and odor-repelling and doesn’t need cleaning often).
