  1. This is beautiful! I don't really wear silk scarves but always love admiring their patterns. Maybe now I have an excuse to buy scarves. Do you think the framing would be be easy enough to DIY?
     
  2. Thank you! I don’t wear silks either, but just loved this one! I had no idea about doing it yourself. I bet it can be done. They used fabric tape and stretched it really right. I wouldn’t have the first clue - honestly wasn’t terrible expensive though. I got museum glass and linen matting and it was about $300 to frame. It turned out being 44”x44”
     
  3. It turned out beautifully! You chose a nice spot to hang it, too.

  4. I wanted to share the results of my Exceptional Tigre Royale Bandana scarf that was purchased at the Carre Club event. I want to especially thank @HKsai who was terrific in explaining the process of stitching the scarf to the mat. I was so buoyed by the success of his scarf framing, I hoped for a similar outcome on mine.

    A local frame shop with excellent reviews was commissioned with the framing and I shared numerous photos from this thread and from @HKsai. They were a bit concerned about the challenge of sewing the scarf down, but having viewed alternate options we agreed to do the sew down to mat effect. We chose a greater depth frame a la shadow box style (about 1” deep) and the white silk mat is a close color to the bandana border. Super pleased with the final results and hope others share more success stories!
