What did Eleanor of Aquitaine and Isadora Duncan have in common?

Scarves are fashion accessories with a long history. Whether brightly colored, made from fine silks, delicately embroidered or beaded with glittering gems, women have loved their scarves. In the Middle Ages, around 1150, Eleanor of Aquitaine started a fashion trend by wearing scarves in a "gossamer cascade" from the tip of her tall pointed hat. Seven hundred and fifty years later, in 1900, Isadora Duncan, the mother of modern dance, popularized long flowing scarves.

What a Beautiful Scarf - I'd forgotten I had it!

Anyone who has a collection of silk, pashmina or other delicate scarves will want to keep them acessible and free of creases. I have tried looping a scarf or belt around the top of a hanger, but they either slip off or are completely obscured by dresses, blouses and jackets.

Today, I sorted through my cupboards and drawers and collected up two very large bags of clothes to take to people in more need than me. Some I didn't even remember having, so if, like me, you need a little help with keeping things tidy and organized, a practical, dedicated scarf holder is a great improvement. All your scarves can be kept together neatly, on a storage gadget designed specifically for the purpose. These useful gadgets can save you from the frustration and wasted time of hunting through your lingerie drawers or closet for that particular scarf. I know, I've been there... it's impossible to find the scarf you want in the multicolored pit full of socks and underwear.

Keep Your Accessories Organised with a Scarf Holder

Are your scarves, ties and belts neatly arranged? Or laying in a tangled heap? It's so much easier to find the item you want if you can keep everything properly organized. They're also less likely to get damaged. These cool scarf hangers, in various designs, will help you to keep your scarves and belts organised and ready to use.

Showing off your collection

Wall-hanger scarf holders can be used to brighten up a plain or dull room. I even have a friend who likes to weave her scarves through her wall-hanger in different patterns.

Keep it Tidy Coat Hanger Style

If you prefer to keep your collection safely stored in a cupboard, you can choose a coat-hanger style. These come in a variety of shapes and sizes (number of holes). Some are very plain and functional - simply an extended coat-hanger with holes for your accessories. Others are more fun, in the shape of a butterfly or flower.

For smaller collections

If you have just a small number of scarves, it is probably better to have a hanger with a small number of scarf slots.

      I have so many scarves! I actually own the 28 circle scarf holder, but now I want that butterfly shaped one, which I haven't seen before! It will look so good holding my many shades of purple scarves :)

      I try to keep everything in its place because it is simpler to maintain and clean it. I despise having a mess around me and be in a situation to rummage other things to find the one I need.

      Your article is so useful and inspiring and I will use it for sure. My scarf will be on a organizer from tomorrow and not in the box :)
