4 Tips on How to Choose Your Handmade Silk Scarf

For thousands of years silk scarves have been essential clothing accessories for both men and women around the world for a multiplicity of reasons. From the fields of battle to the most glamorous fashion show silk scarves have always been prominent. But how do you choose?

The amazing properties of pure handmade Thai scarf scarves as well as their incredible durability and versatility is an outstanding example and explains why they are always in demand and give great value for money.

To help you here are 4 simple tips to consider when selecting your next handmade silk scarves.

1. Don't be a Cheapskate
The quality of the silk which is used to make your silk scarf will impact on the way that the fabric falls and drapes, so always choose 100% pure silk to create the very best effect. Be careful of cheap substitute fabrics that are much cheaper but will not have the durability of pure silk.

2. Dare to Be Different and Choose Unique Designs
If you are going to spend money on a beautiful luxury item then clearly you want your design to be unique. Who wants to keep running into others wearing the same design of scarf?

With both the mass-produced silk products sold everywhere and even designer silk scarves, you will find that there are thousands produced with identical designs. And this does not include those fake or copy handmade scarves that are often found in your local markets.

However, 100% handmade silk scarves feature totally unique designs, which means that you can wear yours safe in the knowledge that you are not going to be embarrassed by turning up somewhere only to find someone else wearing an exact copy of your chosen design.

3. Nothing can Replace Quality Craftsmanship
The durability, uniqueness and versatility of any handmade product have a direct relationship with the quality of the craftsmanship. Mass-produced silk scarves will always contain inferior workmanship compared to the handmade equivalent.

Handmade silk scarves however, are created using timeless techniques and skills, often handed down from generation to generation. Look for those that have pattern designs woven into the fabric as a good alternative to the hand-painted designs.

4. Choose Eco-friendly products
We can all do our bit for conservation and our planet simply by selecting a product that has been created with little or no negative impact on our environment. Handmade silk is a perfect example of such an Eco-friendly product and in addition, with the use of 100% natural dyes, the environment effect is further reduced.

Handmade silk fabric is a much greener alternative than other types of materials such as polyester or nylon as it is both highly biodegradable and does not rely on non-renewable fossil fuels to produce it.

In addition, the techniques which go into the making of handmade scarves do not pollute our atmosphere. So look for the "handmade" label next time you are shopping. In this way you can help the environment in your own small way by selecting 100% naturally dyed, handmade silk scarves.
