STORY:
The design for this scarf was created by fading the outline and its reflection from the original photo and using a second photo as the frame to highlight the mosaics and precious gems. The beautiful turquoise and other vibrant colours reflect how amazing this building is. The Taj Mahal was commissioned in 1632 by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan as a mausoleum for his wife Mumtaz Mahal. This monument to “undying love” is the jewel of Muslim art in India and one of the universally admired masterpieces of the World’s heritage.

THE SILK STORY: Confucius and Chinese legend narrate that around 3000BC the 14 year old Empress Leizu, wife of the Yellow Emperor, discovered Silk when a cocoon fell into her tea cup. She then developed the art of raising silk worms (Sericulture) and became known as the Goddess of Silk in Chinese Mythology. Being an exquisite, precious fibre, for many millennia, it was one of the most zealously guarded secrets in history. Silk is known as the Queen of fabrics: Natural sheen that never diminishes/ soft, light and luxurious / Cool in Summer – Warm in Winter/ Absorbing perspiration yet letting skin breathe/ Promoting skin rejuvenation/ Hypoallergenic/ Eco-Friendly/ Biodegradable/ Easily Washed/ great tensile strength and durability.

CARE: Enjoy your silk garment – our printing techniques produce colours that will not run or fade. With fundamental care, this silk scarf will maintain it’s vibrant colours and quality ‘Silk’ feel for many years. As Silk is a natural fibre avoid drying in direct sunlight. Also, avoid contact with bleaches or solvents with alcohol such as some hairsprays.

HAND WASHING: Preferred: Use lukewarm water and a mild non-alkaline soap such as baby shampoo. Avoid soaking and rinse with a few tablespoons of distilled white vinegar added to the clear water. Avoid wringing or twisting and roll in a towel then hang to dry. Avoid using dryers.
