Geoffrey Beene is considered to have been one of the top designers in the world. The jewel toned necktie is one of his vintage designs. The yellow one is a Dupont tie with the Qiana trademarked fabric made out of nylon, both very silky. A great summer scarf, this upcycled piece feels cool and smooth. Two vintage ties have been recycled into an art scarf, with added appliqued decorations in similar materials. Both circles have a big, vintage leather black button in the middle. Both buttons have some scuffing on the surface. But, remember, the whole point of this is to reuse and to do it with pride! I found a nice bio on Geoffrey Beene with a video honoring his work: http://www.geoffreybeene.com/history.html If you are interested in fashion history, take a gander. Quite interesting! 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: 57″, 145 cm Width: 6″ at the widest, 15.5 cm I think this would look great on a guy, too. Be free! Free shipping worldwide. ________________ I run two wonderful handmade sites.

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.
