This scarf, with its eye-popping and unusual color combination is a beautiful example of a traditional weave pattern. Fringe on all four sides is typical of folk costume. The scarf was probably worn around the shoulders. It was given to the collection by Millicent Rogers, who not only amassed a notable collection of haute couture garments, she also collected folkloric clothing and accessories for her own use.
