    Our 'Austin Blues" dynamic scarf is handwoven in wool and cotton, giving it a luxurious feel. We played with a series of stripes imagining several of our favorite men's shirts all rolled into one. Starting with a turquoise base, we mix it up with ochre, tangerine and jade. To keep it girly and fun, we added beautiful 'jamdani' dots at the very ends in matching colors.
