ShalinCraft Womens Accessory Hand Painted Silk Scarfs Square 36 inches x 36 inches (nsqsrf043)

Square scarf in pure Tanchoi silk with hand painting is extremely soft and flowing and can go well with western as well as oriental dresses. It remains a favorite with women of all ages.

Indian scarves are usually worn on or near the head, for warmth, fashion, cleanliness, or religious purposes. In dry, dusty climates, or in environments where there is a lot of airborne contaminants, a thin scarf is often worn over the head to keep the hair clean. Over time, this custom has evolved into a fashionable item in many cultures, particularly among women. Scarves in India have a significant place and traditional value. They are significant because they are considered a protector of women's integrity. Women's outfit in India is considered incomplete without a long scarf. The fabric of a scarf can be cotton, chiffon, georgette, silk, net or sometimes mixed too. These are integral parts of the salwar kurta, lehenga, and churidar. With cultural exposure from Europe, these scarves found their way to the western wardrobes too.
