Pure Silk Block Printed Scarf - Parrots Tale
Every handcrafted product has a story to tell. So does this scarf.
Back in those days when I was years little and I lived in India is where this story started. I used to play in my little room. One day I was distracted by short quick tweets. I looked up and I saw a little parrot by my window sill. I offered the parrot a piece of candy from my candy jar...and thence started a friendship. Everyday at around the same time the parrot would come by, or so I thought. I would come back from school, run to the room hoping to see him/her. and yes. It would be waiting patiently for me and my generous offer of a piece of candy. Days went by and a friendship was formed. It would come close and let me pet him/her. Till one day when he/ she did not turn up. And the next day he/she did not. And the next... I kept waiting for days but it did not...
Days passed and I never saw the friendly little parrot any more. Till this day in my heart I look for the parrot.
In ode to my friend is my handmade scarf called the "Parrots tale"
