This is definitely a charming and exotic print silk twill scarf that brings to mind the intriguing culture of India. The rider is wearing a traditional turban and his clothing looks rich and might even be decorated with a few jewels! He is beating a set of fancy drums with tassels and crests and riding a magnificent horse. In each of the four corners of the middle square of deep navy blue there’s an exquisite bejeweled saddle. And, there’s a rich border of cream colored silk beautifully decorated with a paisley floral print. The flowers in this paisley garden are done in shades of gold, reddish orange and blue. Green leaves and vines tie this pretty floral display all together. A golden cord surrounds the rider and saddles. The outer edge of this gorgeous large scarf is a band of dark navy blue silk and the outer edge is hand rolled and hemmed. Made in Italy for Mantero VIII Collection, this stunning silk scarf will no doubt be a topic of conversation when worn by it’s new owner.
