Scarf Story For this scarf the original photo has been toned to neutral colours to create a pattern effect from the busy pedestrians and vehicles. Via Condotti is a busy and fashionable shopping street running up to the Piazza di Spagna fountain at the base of the Spanish Steps. It is the street containing the greatest number of Rome based Italian fashion retailers. Here is the magic of photography- to capture forever this 1983 instant that will never be exactly repeated.
Silk Scarf Silk is known as the Queen of fabrics: Natural sheen that never diminishes/ soft, light and luxurious / Cool in Summer – Warm in Winter/ Absorbing perspiration yet letting skin breathe/ Promoting skin rejuvenation/ Hypoallergenic/ Eco-Friendly/ Biodegradable/ Easily Washed/ Great tensile strength and durability. Confucius and Chinese legend narrate that around 3000BC the 14 year old Empress Leizu, wife of the Yellow Emperor, discovered Silk when a cocoon fell into her tea cup. She then developed the art of raising silk worms (Sericulture) and became known as the Goddess of Silk in Chinese Mythology. Being an exquisite, precious fibre, for many millennia, it was one of the most zealously guarded secrets in history.
