A gorgeous vintage Christian Dior silk scarf. This very beautiful scarf is in good condition. The quality of twill weave silk is good. The abstract pattern is in the colours of forest green, lime, deep pink and persimmon laced with gold and ivory. The colours are intense on both sides of the scarf. The scarf was bought from a woman in Normandy.
The Christian Dior soie tag is sewn into the hand rolled hem. The hem is rolled to the front of the scarf as was often done for Dior scarves.
Even if you don’t wear scarves this would look stunning framed and hung on a wall. If you decide to do this I sought some advice from a framer. He advised using a textured mat board that is also acid free which is used for historical documents. The mat will hold the silk and prevent it slipping and sagging. It is important to cover it with glass or a UV plexiglass to prevent fading from the sun.
