The Mary, Mother of the Church Floral Silk Scarf

Unit price  per 

 

This pure silk scarf marries two things I love: florals and The Blessed Virgin Mary. 

Ethically made, vintage inspired, and thoughtfully designed in collaboration with the amazing Litany NYC, the Mary, Mother of the Church scarf is available exclusively at Ever Thrift!

In medieval times, hundreds of flowers were named as symbols of the life, mysteries and privileges of Mary. Every inch of the "Mary, Mother of the Church" scarf points to some deeper meaning. The gorgeous, plumed creamy Dahlia represents "The Church," the sweet blue geraniums as "The Gentle Virgin," and the Lilly of the Valley as "Our Lady's tears." The ivy border is reminiscent of medieval tapestry while beautiful hydrangeas peppered throughout say, "Ave Maria" or "Hail Mary."  Even the soft and organic foliage spilling over the border hearkens to Caravaggio's "Entombment of Christ" and echoing how Christ's hand extends over the painting as if reaching out to us. 

It's an incredibly versatile scarf that can be worn year around with all sorts of colors in all sorts of ways. Measures 20" x 20". Ethically made here in the U.S. in California. 

*care: hand wash gently with baby shampoo for the best results. Harsh detergents or dry cleaning will strip colors.
