Cherry Blossoms Silk Twill Scarf with Straw Boater Hat
This straw boater hat and scarf is part of a limited edition collaboration between Myaraa (by Namrata Lodha) and Kate Stoltz.
This silk twill scarf was custom printed in a small Italian factory in a very limited quantity exclusively for this collaboration. Cherry blossoms photographed in Manhattan's Central Park in full bloom under blue skies without a cloud in sight are thoughtfully formed into a kaleidoscope pattern. Edges are hand rolled by talented artisans. The natural straw boater hat has an adjustable string to adjust to head size.
Scarf Inspired by: The beauty of Central Park on a sunny spring day in the midst of cherry blossom season when the city is pulsing with renewed energy, children's laughter floats through the air, couples walk around holding hands, and dark winter moods are replaced with plans for picnics and frolicking with friends.
Styling Tips: Both pieces were designed to be worn together or separately. The scarf can be worn on the straw boater hat tied around the chin for a ride in a convertible classic car, or simply tied at the back of the hat (with the scarf covering the eyelets) for a more conventional look. This silk scarf can also be worn independently as a scarf with a pretty dress, knotted around the neck to complete a business outfit, tied on your purse handle or simply tied around your head as a headband scarf.
Meanwhile, the natural straw boater hat is lightweight and can be worn to protect you from the sun or simply to add some style to your outfits. The hat can be worn with the silk twill scarf or with your own silk scarf or ribbon. Add the black Petersham ribbon available at checkout to tie around the brim for a classic look that you can quickly switch into.
Hat by Myaraa Details: Sustainably sourced straw is hand woven and sewn into a classic boater hat by experienced female artisans in the Myaraa workshop located in India. The artisans personally collect straw from local wheat fields, using high quality natural materials that are left in the fields after the farmers harvest the wheat. By paying their workers fair wages, Myaraa's founder, Namrata Lodha, is leading the fashion industry with a more ethical, sustainable and fair supply chain that starts with sourcing the fiber and the artisans that harvest these fibers and eventually turn them into an expertly made, light summer hat.
