Silk ikat scarves from Uzbekistan

 Silk ikat scarves from Uzbekistan - Photo 

This stunning scarf is handmade in Uzbekistan using a method known as "ikat weaving." Although I have seen patterns similar to this before, I had no idea they were made by hand nor that this scarf and a gorgeous variety of others are available directly from the source. Now that's fair trade !
