In the winter, scarves are a necessity, but in the spring, they’re a must have accessory! These are some must have scarves for spring – not only are they lightweight, but they’re super versatile and go from being a chunky neck scarf to something light to cover your shoulders on Saturday night in your LBD. And to top it all off – they’re handwoven on the backstrap loom. Handwoven means the artisans started with just threads, and with their immense skill and talents, they wove these threads into a scarf using an ancient technique passed down for generations. You won’t find that artisanship quality or soul at the GAP.
Here are the top picks:
Classic White – your everyday go to scarf that just screams ¨Look out everyone, spring is here!¨
Colors & Tradition – For the girl with a bit of a wild side with an appreciation for fine art and creativity of the rural artisans.
Poppin’ Red – Make your bright red statement with this handwoven scarf for a pop of color on those days with April showers.
