Chiffon Kerchiefs - Set of Two - Brown/Green
We have run out of stock for this item.
Approximately 21” x 22” give or take an inch.
This is a pair of two striped neckerchiefs that can be worn together or separately. I've paired these two together because of the beautiful effect that happens when you layer the brown kerchief on top of the green. You can orient them to create a plaid or a wavy stripe. The edges of the two kerchiefs don't line up perfectly, but it is part of the charming layered effect.
This sheer kerchiefs feels lighter than air. An effortless adornment that can be dressed up or down. Leheriya is a traditional tie-dye technique from Rajasthan, India. The term leheriya comes from the Rajasthani word for wave. I bought these fabrics directly from a master artisan whose family has been practicing the tradition for four generations.
These items are in 'as-is' condition and are final sale. Due to a small miscommunication, the hems were not sewn in the high-end rolled hem technique that would be appropriate for this lightweight fabric. However, I couldn't bear to let these sit on the shelf as the fabric itself is so magical and tied to such a beautiful tradition. They are priced to reflect these imperfections.

I bought this set of incredible lehariya kerchiefs for the craftsmanship and the colorplay combinations possible. The dye technique is nearly a lost art and it is very hard to find skilled examples. Last Chance is offering a trove of lovely colors and patterns. If you have ever attempted multi-color hand dyeing or shibori, you will appreciate the thought, skill and ingenuity of these seemingly simple scarves. Grab yourself a piece of dyeing artistry!
