A vintage kantha scarf is a wearable and versatile artisan treasure. Wrapped, tied, bowed they are a lend themselves to creative styling. Worn simply they add texture and colour to an outfit.

Each scarf/shawl is reversible with 2 different sides that creates a multitude of colour and print options.
