Our first scarf ever created, inspired by our favorite magical adventure to the holiest city in India - the Varanasi silk scarf remains a FARA favorite.
Symbolizing the holiness of this unique city is the imagery of the revered Holy Cow and Sadhu, while the Rangoli drawing is front and center as a blessing to Shiva. The grey smokey colourway represents the smokey atmosphere that embraces the city. The border is illustrated with prayer flowers, masala chai and the holy smoke that are omni-present in Varanasi.
All of the illustrations are meticulously and lovingly hand painted by Fumie using Japanese watercolours. The illustrations are then digitally printed onto thick luxurious silk to create our signature scarves.
FABRIC + CARE
Silk is a luxurious, beautiful, and delicate fabric that should be treated with care. We recommend, always professionally dry clean your garment or hand wash carefully in cold water with a special silk detergent. This will keep the colour and silk strong. If silk is handled correctly it is durable and long lasting, but the yarn becomes porous and damaged if treated incorrectly. Avoid spraying perfume or deodorant on the garment and never expose silk to direct sunlight.
