In the words of fashion icon Audrey Hepburn, ‘When I wear a silk scarf I never feel so definitely like a woman, a beautiful woman’.

The origin of this stylish item goes back to Ancient Egypt! In the 20th century, silk scarves became a symbol of power, independence and glamour for women and one of the most essential and versatile fashion accessories.

Scarves are a form of self-expression and they are one of the most timeless pieces in the fashion industry. They represent sophistication, elegance and femininity. They are the most chic fashion accessory a woman can have in her wardrobe and are perfect for any occasion.

Over the years, scarves have become available in a wide variety of materials and designs, including silk, knit and more.
