It's almost spring. Almost. That's what I tell myself as I pull on knee-high socks, boots, and a coat. I'm not ready for full-on pastels, but these gorgeous, block-printed scarves are a great way to dip a toe into the bright, carefree colors of spring.
The founder of Rikshaw Designs, which we introduced to our readers years ago, has traveled the globe to bring traditionally block-printed textiles into the design world. We love the luscious bedding and clothing for women and children, but I'm especially digging the 100% cotton voile scarves. Especially for spring. Because some of us can't do head-to-toe seafoam and coral, but we can use a light, pretty scarf for the perfect pop of color around the neck, on a bag handle, or as a hair accessory. Right?
I just love the up-close detail on the block printing, not to mention the hand-tied fringe. When you check out the pics of the Rikshaw Design artisan in Jaipur creating the prints carefully, one wooden stamp at a time, you realize that you're not just wearing a scarf--you're wearing a work of art. In the hottest colors of the season, no less, that will take you easily into summer and beyond. -Delilah
