Our silk scarves are a mix of classic 90 cm squares and 70x180 cm oblong scarves. All the prints are our own original design and draw inspiration from the people and places around us. Like all of the best silk, our scarves are printed in Como, Italy, where they have been printing silk for centuries. We use 12 momme silk for Crêpe de Chine squares and a lighter weight 8 momme chiffon for the oblongs. A ‘momme’ is the weight in pounds of 100 yards of a 45 inch wide piece of silk.
Unlike many silk scarves, which are finished with a machine, our scarves are finished with a hand rolled and stitched edge to provide the perfect finishing touch - maintaining the original artisan quality of Cornelia James.
Our silk scarves are designed with the Cornelia James woman in mind and are completely at home in town or country. They are the perfect gift for any woman with timeless style - no woman can ever have too many scarves.
