1x Vintage Silk Kimono Remnant Patchwork Infinity Scarf (as shown in photographs)

What is better than one beautiful pattern? The answer is probably "five patterns".
The "Medley" infinity scarves are made from vintage silk kimono remnants, joined together so you can have countless ways of wearing the one scarf, depending on which pattern and colours you choose to display at the front. These are also not as wide, great for those who like their scarves less bulky.

Each scarf is one of a kind.

A bit of a funny story: the last time I visited in Japan, I lost my scarf on the way to Asakusa while doing a kimono rental. I was very sad as it was a designer scarf I had purchased for my own birthday and I owned it for a few years. Now I've decided to make infinity scarves, so that way, they won't ever fall off the neck and get lost!

This particular scarf uses fabrics of a dark blue with most panels with subtle contrast. Depending on how you wear this one, you can have vibrant oranges, or muted blues for a subtle look. The fabric was sourced from an Australian supplier, who imported it from Kyoto, Japan.
The "inner" layer is a 96% polyester 4% spandex crepe fabric in a navy colour made in Korea, and is of medium weight. It is soft and drapes beautifully.

There is no twist in the scarf, taking into account that the scarf can be folded flat if you choose to store it in a drawer.
To wear: simply twist the scarf into a figure eight, and pop over the head - adjust as you wish to show which colours you want more, and feel free to move it towards your back to shorten, or wear it as one short loop and one long loop - or one long loop and let hang. 

Please be advised that none of the fabrics have been prewashed (with the exception of the kimono silk panel, which was cleaned in Kyoto) and the vintage kimono silk is estimated from the 1980s (for this lot I think maybe even earlier) and is in very good condition for its age. Some panels The scarf was lightly ironed/ pressed during construction, but nothing too much as the scarf is best worn puffy and not flat.
