Since time immemorial (that is, since at least the 14th century), scarves have been an integral part of culture, fashion, and spirituality, almost in equal measure. In 1350 BC, legendary Egyptian queen Nefertiti reportedly stepped out in an exquisitely designed scarf/royal headdress combination. In the mid 1800s, Queen Victoria began to popularize scarves as fashion accessories—and even famously crocheted some of her own. And who can forget glamorous painter Frida Kahlo, cutting an always-unforgettable figure in her colorful Rebozo scarves?
Kahlo is actually a particularly apropos scarf icon, as scarves, themselves, are very much like moving, or wearable, paintings. Weather you prefer them in the traditional “neckerchief” style or like them long, flowing, and “dancerly," they always make a stunning statement.
The only problem is finding a convenient, streamlined way to collect them. Shopping in person, after all, is always a matter of catch-as-catch-can. In other words, what you find is what you get. And if you don't find everything you want in one location—well, the hunt (and maybe the wild goose chase, too) is destined to go on.
That's why online marketplaces have truly revolutionized the art of shopping. At our virtual store, you can effortlessly browse through, and consolidate, a fabulous array of choices. From classic scarves like the Ancestral Star to the vibrant, eye-popping Aztec designs of the Art Deco collection to Monarch Butterfly Scarves that are realistic enough to look like an actual flight of butterflies, there's no end to the possibilities. Scarves that showcase folk art, scarves that pay tribute to modern performance artists ... if you can imagine it, you can almost surely find it in our inventory, and buy it online. You can purchase 10 scarves at once, if you like, or start building your collection over time.
In other words, the dynamic history of these beautiful accessories is literally at your fingertips. So why not pay a visit Pineda Covalin's online boutique and start curating your own gallery of “wearable paintings” today?
