    1 - Silk Georgette Scarf - British Transit Route Sign Accessory - Select ONE of two scarves shown in photos (bottom left)

    The most stunning silk georgette scarf you've ever introduced your neck to.

    Each scarf is a full size Vintage British Transit Route Sign measuring 25 inches wide by 72 inches long.

    Pledgers who select this pillow reward will have their choice of ONE of two scarves. This choice will be made at the conclusion of the Kickstarter Campaign.

    Select EITHER:

    You'll get stopped in the street when you wear this scarf out in public - folks will beg to know where you got it.

    Never seen or offered anywhere before this Kickstarter Campaign - this may be our favorite pledge reward.

    Please note - these scarves are printed from the same high-resolution graphic that our yardage is printed with. The background of this fabric is a patinated slate surface with stray chalk marks and other imperfections. This is intentional and adds to the vintage style we are replicating from original route signs.
