Pom Pom Upcycled Necktie Scarf- Vintage Silk, Egyptian Camels, Tie #9
Pom Pom scarf using recycled neckties.
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!
Length: 59″, 150 cm Width: 4.5″ at the widest, 11.5 cm
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.
