This hand-painted silk scarf ha written Constantin Kavafis's poem Ithaka, one of the most beautiful poems about life passage. The design uses calligraphy as a decorative element, in different languages (Spanish, Catalan, English and French), using different lettering for each one.
Hand-painted, with a gutta reserve and batik technique, this unique piece is the perfect gift for any occasion. It is timeless, so it never goes out of style. You will receive it gift-wrapped. The complete poem is included in all different languages.
Art to wear that you can wear and that you will not find in any store. Each piece is unique. This light silk, with a soft drape, wraps nicely and is very easy to wear. It is the ideal complement for different styles.
This original design is hand painted on silk. We paint the motif directly on the silk, with special non-toxic silk paints. All our silks go through the steam setting process, to preserve the color, so they are washable and soft. With this process the colors remain fastened, and the silk does not lose its soft touch and shine.
Our scarves are hand painted. There may be slight variations in color as each piece is unique. The scarf you will receive may be slightly different from the one in the photo. There may also be some little difference between the color on your screen and the real color, due to the color settings of each screen.
