Two vintage ties have been recycled into an art scarf with colorful Pom Poms which I made myself. New life given to what was destined for a landfill! The golden one, which has the Pom Poms tied on to it, is silk. It has a beautiful texture and is soft from wear, but was starting to show imperfections. Tying it up hid those areas. (Nothing drastic, just wouldn’t look good as a flat tie anymore.)
The other tie is in great condition. Probably polyester, Egyptian designs decorate the web. Colors: rust, teal, and brown. Neither tie has any tags for identification or provenance.
I belong to a textile and fiber art group and one of my friends had a big box of ties she was going to throw away if nobody took them. A couple of us went to the rescue!

I think this would look great on a guy, too. Or, as a head wrap. Be free!

This listing refers you to my shop on Etsy. I’ve been there for a long time and sold on eBay for nine years before that. I will be adding new listings to my shop here on Artizan Made. I also manage shops for Afghan Tribal Arts and Oshiwa Designs. Purchased between the three shops can be shipped together. I will send an invoice for shipping separately if it involves items that don’t fit into a flat rate envelope.
I have loved working with my hands since childhood and have tried many craft techniques, finally settling on the textile arts as my main form of expression. I like pulling bits and pieces together to make a greater whole, assembling textures on to a form. But, my bins of fabric are on hold for now as I recently discovered a new obsession, knitting! We'll see how all of these interests merge together over time... I have also sold supplies and tools that I purchase from traders or find in thrift stores. Textile remnants and printing blocks are two favorites I look for. So you might find these, along with what I make, in my shop.
I use the United States Postal Service for shipping, usually using their flat rate envelopes and boxes. I can ship using 1st Class airmail, which is a lot cheaper, but it is not as secure. In the over 20 years that I have used the US Post Office, rarely has there been a loss of mail, although many countries do keep things in customs for a long time. If something is lost, we will process it through the US Post Office. This cannot be done until one month after the shipping date and takes a couple of weeks. I am not responsible for products lost in the mail.
Full refunds minus shipping are given on all returns. Customer pays for shipping both to purchase and to return. Returns must be done within 10 days of purchase. International customers can return within 10 days of receipt, but need to check in and inform me about what is going on.
Cancellation / Return / Exchange Policy
I believe that customers should be 100% happy with what they buy from me, so will accept returns with no questions asked. Although the internet has made it much easier to access our beautiful world, there are many reasons something might not be quite what was expected. I try to photograph each piece as well as I can and give good descriptions, but if you are not happy with what you bought, do return it.
