Whilst we have an array of shades and tones to choose from, purple remains one of our most popular colours. But what makes purple scarfs so special?
The colour purple combines the calm stability and relaxation of the colour blue with the fierce energy and intensity of the colour red. Together they make the brilliant colour of purple which is the perfect balance of these two primary colours.
Purple scarves or purple shawls can often be seen as a statement of independence. Purple is not a primary colour therefore it can often be perceived as a sign of fusing the mundane with the innovative.
This colour of material is often associated with royalty and luxury. This is because purple dye used to be precious and expensive. As you are aware, purple is not visible in nature. Consequently purple dye could not be made naturally and had to be produced synthetically.
As time went by, clothing and dyes developed and the first purple dye came into existence in 1900 BC. These early dies took around 12,000 shellfish to extract 1.5g of the dye. As a result, only kings, emperors or privileged individuals could afford to have purple garments and shawls. Now they have become a lot more affordable and are available for all to purchase from our extensive range at York Scarves!
So why not treat yourself like royalty and buy one of our luxurious purple scarves today? All yours at close to wholesale prices. And, if after reading this, you decide that purple isn't your colour, we have a range of other styles in our extensive scarf collection.
From Queen Nefertiti in Ancient Egypt, Emperors in China and even Queen Victoria, scarves have been always been a popular fashion item for the well to do. However it wasn't until the 19th century that scarves became a popular fashion accessory for the average person in the street. Since then they have progressed massively after experimentation with different fabrics and dyes. Now, scarves remain a staple accessory for both fashion and function.
Scarves are available in a range of materials including silk, cloth, cashmere, pashmina, chiffon, cotton, muslim and wool. And its not just the types of material that scarves are made of that has changed. Its also the availability of colours and prints. Today, fashion designers around the world produce custom scarves; beautiful embellished designs printed onto fabulous handwoven silk scarves. I'm sure we're all in no doubt that scarves will continue to be at the forefront of fashion for many years into the future.
A good scarf is one of the easiest ways to spruce up your look, so tie up your style with a beautifully delicate item from our women's scarf collection.
We have an extensive range of men's and women's scarves on offer to both the general public and through our wholesale channels. They make an ideal accessory or a gift for any occasion and include:
Perfect for pairing with occasionwear or to simply put a refined finish on your outerwear collection, a purple pashmina or cashmere is an extremely versatile staple for any fashion conscious wardrobe. We carry a huge range of plain and patterned pashminas in a wide range of fabrics, weights and textures all in stock for immediate delivery.
These stylish accessories are not only comfortable and cozy. They also have the potential to transform an entire outfit with minimal effort. Our shawls are made from very fine cotton and viscose pieces woven together down the centre but open at the sides giving plenty of options for experimentation in how they are worn.
The silk scarf, or ladies neck scarf, is one of those never-out-of-style accessories that always comes in handy. At York Scarves we sell a range of scarves in various types of silk, all of which have their own distinct characteristics. Our Thai Silk Scarves are known the world over and are made from a completely raw and unprocessed yarn. Another raw silk scarf we sell is made by our hand loom weavers in North India. The silk used is much heavier than the yarn used for Thai Silk making this more of a luxury silk scarf. As part of our range of digitally printed scarves we also have some Japanese Habotai Silk Scarves with artwork designed in house. And lastly, we have a range of luxury silk scarves made in a satin weave. Off all silk’s, satin is probably the most lustrous and luxurious, and expensive.
Tartan is a design in which fabrics are woven with groups of different coloured threads running across the weft and through the warp to create a checked, or plaid pattern. These designs have been around for many centuries and are closely associated with Scotland, and to a lesser extent Ireland, Wales and several other countries. Our tartan scarves are not only fantastic quality but also at great affordable prices! Woven from soft, high quality pure cotton thread in a classic twill weave, a purple tartan scarf is perfect to give as a gift or ideal to wrap around yourself on those chilly days!
So why not throw on a scarf and transform an everyday outfit into a statement one. Choose a plain purple one or go for a printed style for an on-trend twist.
