Sevya’s Kantha Recycled Silk Scarf is handmade by women artisans in India using 100% silk recycled saris. Two different silk saris are used for each piece, and the saris are hand-stitched together using the traditional Kantha embroidery technique in distinctive, artistic patterns. Each piece is unique, and features handmade tassels with buttons at each end, with different prints and colors on each side. It can be used as a scarf, wrap or a table runner. Dimensions: 18" x 78". The color combination is always different, and they come to us in an assortment. One will be chosen at random at the time of your order, or if you'd like to know current color selection, contact us at 16 Hands. We can describe what's available, or send you a photo.
