Description

Mekong inspiration and master weaver skills come together in this dynamic, bold scarf which gets softer and softer with age! The luscious scarf is designed by Mrs. Sykai, a master weaver who finds inspiration in the natural world.

Using ikat dyed warp threads, Mrs. Sykai weaves a zigzag pattern that symbolises the flow of the Mekong River through the Lao countryside. Did you know that silk yarns are naturally cooling in the summer and warming in the winter?
