A luxurious silk scarf may seem only affordable when the sales come around. The drastic reduction of prices, following Christmas sees a lot of such merchandise end-up in the bargain bins. Yet, these seeming bargains are usually limited – the best has already come and gone. The remaining colors and styles are those that no one else really wanted. These accessories are hardly likely to go with anything we have in our closets and drawers.
Sale items are often designer silk scarves. They are usually long out-of-fashion by the time they reach the bins so why bother buying even one? Yet, even at rock-bottom prices, these designer silk scarves hardly represent good value. They feature inferior workmanship and are not handmade – except, perhaps for the border stitches. The designs are limited and printed. This contrasts with the excellent workmanship that creates hand painted silk scarves. Available online, these are genuine examples of high quality craftsmanship.
Purchasing a hand painted silk scarf is rarely more expensive than what it costs for a similar designer item. The process, however, makes them a superior accessory. High quality is evident from the unique design to the creative process that produces one. An artisan blocks off the pattern on 100% unadulterated silk fabric. He or she then paints in the specific pattern colors by hand. This is a traditional technique and results in colors that leap out at the viewer. Such vibrancy is no longer possible for those following modern, mass-production methods. Moreover, the older processes help the silk to retain its lustrous softness – one of its major characteristics.
It is extremely easy these days to sit at home and order a hand painted silk scarf online. Any reputable retailer will provide you with a comprehensive return policy as well as a money-back guarantee. While the choice of silk scarves is limited in a retail outlet, this is not true for an online store. On the net, you can find and purchase silk scarves in a humongous range of patterns and colors. The prices remain affordable for you no matter what the hour or the season.
Remember this next time you go bargain bin diving. Retail outlets may seem to offer you silk scarves at a bargain but this does not mean you are getting the most for your money. In terms of style, what they offer may be so yesterday. If you truly want a unique but reasonably priced silk scarf go online and discover the real bargains and the incredible available range.
