Just found this great headscarf, in superb condition. I always pick these up when I come across them because they are unique. The floral, geometric or novelty prints are irreplaceable.
Hand-rolled edges and interesting fabrics make them quality items which obviously stand up well over time (if not silk or fabulous mid-century rayon, they are often made of one of the mystery synthetics of that era as this one probably is).
Nothing sparks up an outfit like one of these attention-grabbing pieces. Anyone with an “eye” will know that it didn’t come from a mall store or even modern Europe. But often, it just leaves them perplexed – “That’s a nice scarf. Where did you get it?” . . . . . . . . . . . .
