How many herbs can you identify on this custom-designed silk scarf? Rendered in soft, pastel tones, the scarf design was first produced in 1997. It sold out then and will do so again. Until midnight, today only (Monday, December 7, 2015), the scarf it is available for $5 off. That’s $40, plus $2.60 shipping.
The bargain is part of HSA’s “10 Days of Giving” which ends December 10, 2015.
Designed by established textile artist Kevin O’Brien the silk scarf can be worn in a number of ways, from simply draping the fabric square to complicated tied constructions.
O’Brien, as his website tells it, switched from painting to textile art in 1997, the same year HSA first worked with him. Since then, his upscale textiles have become well-known and sold worldwide. They can be found online through a number of vendors.
HSA also offers an O’Brien’s vibrant work on an 18- by 72-inch rectangle. It features brightly colored Monarda fistulosa (bee balm) and hummingbirds against a black background. Learn more about purchasing.
