I am in love with these scarves. Obviously in love with Oprah too... But still.
A little bit about the design story of these scarves.
So I was googling forms of self defense through the ages and I found out about this thing. A Hat Pin. Between the late 1880s and the early 1920s, it was a form of self defence for women.
The iconic Gibson Girl, drawn by Charles Dana Gibson, pinned her hair up on her head, with hatpins to keep her hat in place.
So I looked deeper into these GORGEOUS HAT PINS - no joke, some of them were absolutely stunning.
And I referenced their designs into the scarf motifs.
