This is a large shawl that can also be used as a headcovering in church. It is made of very soft Anatolian silk and is hand-woven. The scarf is two sided so that you can choose between two different shades to wear. It is soft and elegant, yet not so slippery that it will fall off your head. We import these directly from a silk bazaar located in Bursa, Turkey at the Western end of the historic "Silk Road" that has been in business continuously for over 600 years.
