Silk scarves have been used for a variety of
purposes throughout history. Its lightweight warmth caused silk to become one of
the most popular materials for things like aviator's scarves and for parachutes.
However, the high cost of silk throughout history has meant that silk scarves
were often considered a luxury item in Europe and North America. It has only
been in the last 20 years that silk scarves have become more widely available.
Thai silk scarves are among the most elegant and beautiful scarves, and have
been thrilling the fashion world for several years now.
The production of silk stretches back centuries in Thailand. Because Thailand is
the only Southeast Asian nation to have never been ruled by a European power,
silk production is much more traditional. Additionally, Thai silk is considered
exceptionally durable and high quality. This quality silk is washed, and then
dyed carefully to produce stunning and memorable colors. One of the most
remarkable features of Thai silk scarves is their patterns and artwork, many of
which stem from Thai folklore and culture.
