With its gorgeous, refined floral imagery and hand-woven silk material, this scarf from Maiyet (in collaboration with the website, Artspace) is a high fashion accent item that can subtly and totally transform an outfit.

Made to benefit the Trace Foundation, an organization that supports the continuity, development, and vitality of Tibetan communities and culture, this Maiyet scarf features a handwoven lotus stem from Burma amid two handwoven silks from India, lending it an unparalleled smoothness and grace.

The design, by Trace artists Livia Liverani and Nyima Dhondup, matches the delicate beauty of the material, with minimalist floral imagery in rich, cool hues. Recalling monastic art and Buddhist traditions dating back thousands of years, the pattern evokes the endlessly renewing cycles of nature. Its mandala-like pattern is both delicate and balanced and makes the scarf an excellent accent piece for a wide range of styles.

Originally from Italy, Livia Liverani studied traditional Tibetan silk painting in Ladakh and has shown work internationally as well as in Tibetan Buddhist monasteries since 2005. Working with Nyima Dhondup, a Buddhist Monk, she employs silk and textile painting with powerful symbolism and delicate, finely-honed technique as both aesthetic and meditative practice.

Dhondup taught Tibetan language to westerners and has worked tirelessly for the cause of peace and enlightenment, in part through textile arts like this Maiyet scarf. Now with this collaboration, you can show your support for the Trace Foundation while also showing your impeccable taste in accessories. The quality of the silk and its workmanship, along with the provenance of the art, make this Maiyet x Artspace collaboration a real treasure.
