Wild California Poppy Wildrag
Our Wild California Poppy design hand printed on silk.
A “wild rag” is a cowboy or western scarf worn around the neck. Wild rags have been around since the 1800s and traditionally used as protection from the elements. They’re typically much larger than a bandana or neckerchief and are more functional and can serve many practical uses on the trail or on the town. We make our wild rags from the finest 100% silk we can source, hand dye them with natural dyes in small batches, then hand print each one, one at a time. Each piece is one of a kind, with subtle variations in color and pattern, that is a testament to the hand made nature of this product.
For nearly 5000 years silk has been sought after because it is naturally warm, breathable, insulates and is lightweight. Silk is an ideal fiber when worn next to the body. Unlike polyesters and cotton, silk wicks away moisture, while keeping the body warm and dry, making it one of the most absorbent of the natural fibers. It is warmer than wool and gets even softer with wear.
