This scarf features a luxurious thick velvet scarf with burnout pattern known as the peony. Vibrant pumpkin orange velvet gives way to a light soft orange sheer chiffon silk patterning. This is the perfect scarf for an elegant night out on the town, offering cover and warmth. The scarf is fringed with silk fringing. This scarf is color fast and hand washable.
The process: This scarf is a velvet that is silk backed. The process to create the pattern involves using a stencil placed over the fabric, and a chemical is painted on the fabric, and allowed to dry. The chemical burns out the velvet, leaving the sheer silk visible.
Fun fact: this technique is called Devore, however because of the effect of the chemicals burning out velvet in the creation of the pattern many people refer to them as burnout. During the high Victorian era these were very popular, and when not worn they were tossed atop the piano, and came to be known as piano scarves.
