Each scarf made of six to eight different fabrics is a lovely one-of-a-kind piece. Originally part of a Japanese kimono, each section is individually chosen to complement each of the others. The scarf will look different depending on the way it is worn and tied, and made of 100% silk, it is a delight to wear. The pictures are all of the same scarf. A great addition to a wardrobe, whether you buy it for yourself or a friend.
The Artist/Designer: Kelly Harrington, currently living in Cambridge, was born and raised in Simcoe, Ontario. After completing a university degree in art history, Kelly worked at a public gallery in a variety roles and then opened a successful home and garden store known for its eclectic merchandise and exceptional displays. Kelly still works in the visual field, in an arts organization and as a freelance stylist.
Possessing a keen artistic eye, Kelly was inspired to create scarves from the beautiful vintage Japanese kimono fabrics. The complexity of the fabric designs, the motifs that often reference nature and the Japanese aesthetic is a continual source of inspiration and delight. “I love the challenge of finding multiple different but complementary fabrics for one-of-a-kind silk scarves, giving fabrics used in traditional Japanese kimonos a new life as a contemporary fashion accessory.”
