This scarf was made by sewing two vintage neckties together, creating an artsy scarf. The aqua one has a lining fabric with the brand Schiaparelli.  See the fascinating story of this designer here. She collaborated with Dali, Man Ray and Pierre Cardin!  That tie does not have a content label. The psychedelic one does say that it is polyester. I am guessing 1970’s for both ties.

Note: Image looks bluer than it is. Color is a rich grey where it looks blue.

I made and added pom poms to the sides. This is a fun accessory for a party or gallery opening!

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.
