Lined London Fog Asanoha Scarf

100% Tsumugi Silk

Fabric is from the 1970s in elegant London Fog blue with scattered Asanoha patterns. 麻の葉: Asanoha, a hemp leaf pattern, is a common and versatile motif. Named after the Asa (hemp) plant, its origins are entirely geometric (comprised of six diamonds) and popular for its visual presence. In pre-industrial Japan, hemp and other natural motifs often made their way into textile designs.

Tsumugi silk originated with farmers who made use of cocoons left over after they had sold their best silk. They collected the floss from the cocoons, spun (tsumugi) it by hand into thread and weaved kimono for themselves. 

This scarf is lined with woven white kimono silk, often used for wedding kimonos.
