Upcycled Necktie Scarf – Crown Paisley and Deer

A scarf made with vintage neckties: paisley, crowns and deer designs. Wearable art.

$22.50

Description

This scarf was made by sewing two vintage neckties together, creating an artsy scarf. Both are thick and sturdy. The red and blue one has some kind of animal sitting down. A deer? That same neck tie has a label on the back that says “Handmade in Italy”. The paisley tie has no label. The two medallions are also made of tie fabric, embroidered and centered with a bark cloth yo-yo.

A friend of mine was moving and called all of us fiber artists over to snap up her stash of supplies. She had a barrel full of neckties and told us that whatever was left was going into the dumpster, so I grabbed a bunch.  Couldn’t have that happen!

I had a lot of fun making these bold accessories (I made several). I think of this as something similar you would see in some countries, where a textile is draped for effect, more than for function.
