Silk Scarves

Indian silk scarves may feature many different patterns, ranging from tie dying and squares to elaborate representations of stars, moons, and planets. Artwork on Thai silk scarves varies even more. One of the most traditional symbols in Indian culture is that of the Elephant, and so many scarves feature this animal in a variety of settings. Floral pictures are also popular, as are trees and other nature scenes. Other pictures often seen on Indian silk scarves are birds perched on lush tree branches, scenes of traditional village life or of Buddhist temples. Because the price of silk has dropped in recent years, it is now possible for women to wear a beautiful piece of art, both for warmth and as a fashion accessory. Thai silk scarves in white and in solid colors are also popular with men who want to evoke the image of the brave and adventurous aviator.
