10 Great Reasons for Investing in Hand Painted Silk Scarves and Shawls

Updated on August 25, 2015

The marketplace provides few chances to spend your money wisely on accessories. An exception is superb hand painted silk shawls and scarves. There are many reasons why it is a good move to invest in them. Here are 10 of the top reasons for doing so.

1. Versatility

Few accessories can beat silk shawls and scarves for versatility. They can hide unsightly bulges, transform a plain outfit or evening wear and decorate your hair, your purse, your belt.

2. Warmth/Coolness

Few fabrics are suitable for both cold and warm climes. Pure, 100% silk – the fabric comprising hand-painted silk shawls and scarves keeps you warm in winter and cool in summer. The nature of silk makes it a year-round bargain.

3. Luxury

Who can say no to the sumptuous, luxurious feel of pure silk? Add to this the infinite number of carefully crafted designs and you have the ideal product. What other material offers you such lavishness, grace and sophistication?

4. Exclusivity

You can locate run-of-the-mill silk shawls and scarves in retail outlets. Even designer silk shawls and scarves are found in certain common shops. Less prevalent are the unique designs and exclusive patterns of hand-painted silk shawls and scarves. The chances are rare if not nil, you will find anyone else wearing your wearable work of art

5. Timelessness

This is an accessory of the ages. For centuries, women have used silk shawls and scarves in a variety of ways. It has been an essential part of many women’s wardrobe. Around the world, women wear silk accessories. For them, and for you, it will never be unfashionable.

6. Agelessness

There is an agelessness about silk shawls and scarves. Worn with ripped and faded jeans, these accessories create a fashion statement for the teen and tweenie generations. As a woman matures, silk scarves and shawls do much to accentuate her beauty, adding style and grace to whatever style she chooses to make her own.

7. Perfect for all shapes and sizes

Accessories can be sheer hell on certain body types. It is not a case of “one-size-fits-all.”  Silk shawls and scarves, however, are an exception to this rule. Use them to accentuate or detract from the desired body parts.

8. Perfect for all colorings

Matching your accessories with your coloring is important. This is an area where mass-produced objects fail – often miserably. They are too limited in variety and scope. Once again, hand-painted silk shawls and scarves avoid this trap. They have a wide variety of colors, shades and hues to match any skin coloring.

9. The ultimate confidence booster

There is a direct co-relation between looking good and feeling great. Simply putting on this accessory makes you feel pampered, elegant and chic. The result is manifested in a boost in your confidence, a stride in your walk.

10. Sheer unadulterated beauty

Simply looking at handmade silk shawls and scarves increases your appreciation for beauty. How can one doubt pure elegance and beauty exists after gazing just once at this accessory?
