Recycled PomPom Necktie Scarf- Vintage Silk and Polyester: Steel Grey, Yellow, Orange, Tie #7
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! Two vintage ties have been recycled into an art scarf with colorful Pom Poms which I made myself.
The skinnier, bluish tie is silk with Schiaparelli named on the back lining as the designer, quite famous in the 1940’s-1960’s. Here’s a little bio on her. The bolder tie has a small label on the back which reads “Commodore Texturized Polyester”, safely from the 1970’s. The polyester feels like silk.
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. 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.
