Palisander


Palisander01

Palisander is a reversible, textured scarf inspired by the deep, rich colors and beautiful grain lines of antique wooden furniture. Palisander is the name used in Denmark for Rosewood.

Along the length of the scarf run winding cables on one side and on the other it is covered in gnarly shapes.

The scarf is both wide and long, so as perfectly to ward off the frosty bite of winter, covering both ears and nose if necessary. In milder weather it can serve as a decorative little shoulder wrap.
