History In Silk

On a visit to our local charity shop earlier in the summer, I discovered a scarf tied to a rail.  The colours had caught my eye, as they were so vibrant.  I thought that it was silk and when I gave it a closer inspection, I found that it was.

What came as a bigger surprise was the information on the label, which stated that it was 'Made in Occupied Japan'.   

Not only is it vintage, but it must be more than 70 years old.  It is in perfect condition and I think that it will add some much-needed colour to winter.


  1. What a beautiful scarf and with quite a history too. You will enjoy wearing it:)

  2. Thanks Rosie - I do enjoy wearing it and I think it was a fabulous find. Marie x
