No other sartorial accessory in the world expresses beauty, elegance and luxury like a silk scarf does. It transcends countries and centuries, from China to Egypt, from Queen Nefertiti’s times to the fashion shows of Milan and Paris today.  Thierry Hermes’ introduction of the first luxury silk scarves in 1937 marks its advent as a modern day fashion statement.

Like with all things fashion, the best of silk scarves are to be found in Dubai. But before you set out to hand-pick silk scarves as souvenirs or gifts, let us quickly learn a few things about them.  If it feels light, delicate and almost transparent, you have a silk chiffon in your hands - ideal for summers to give a fashionable tweak to any outfit.  When you get a clear feel of the soft and elegant weave pattern on your fingers, it is undoubtedly a mixture of twill and silk. The finest quality of silk scarves is, however, made from silk satin - extremely supple to the touch with a lustrous finish. Warm against your skin during winters and cool in summers, they add richness and grace to your style.

Let us start out on the trail of silk scarves in Dubai with the medium-end options. Our first stop would be the Textile Souk or Naif Souk, with scarves ranging from most intricate to simple designs. From there on, we can explore the Al Fahidi Street in Bur Dubai, which has both roadside stores and shopping malls; next on the to-visit list is the Apsara Souk. All these places have plenty of options with varying qualities of silk; you are sure to find one that meets your needs. If souk-shopping is not your style, then the Deira City Centre is the best option.  It has the right mix of high-street and local stores specializing in silk scarves that offer good value for money.

For a truly exceptional selection of premium silk scarves with designs like intricate Arabesque calligraphy and images of monarchs to floral designs, you need to visit Le Boudoir d’Eden, Stradivarius, Carrefour, Hermes, Top Shop, Al Khazana, Galerie Hamadan and Aigner at Dubai Mall and Kashka, Celine, Bvlgari, Boutique 1 and Hanayen at MOE. Places like 50°C at Souk Al Bahar, The Walk at JBR and Antique Museum at 12B Al Quoz Industrial Area also have some of the most exquisite silk scarves that money can buy.

It is said that there are 98 ways to wear a scarf, how many do you know of?
