Shawls are worn as a decorative finishing touch to an outfit and also as a functional fashion accessory: think a wool shawl for warmth or a shawl to cover bare shoulders in the summer.
Just like scarves, women's shawls can be worn in many different ways, and can instantly change the look of an outfit.
A lightweight silk shawl with a pretty motif is the perfect addition to your wardrobe.
It can be sheer as in silk chiffon or Georgette, or semi sheer as in charmeuse or lightweight satin.
They are a terrific investment as they can be worn year round and change the look of your outfits.
They can be worn in a variety of different ways to create different looks. A solid color shawl can be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion.
They can also be used to create a color block look, contrasting colors in your outfit to create a unique and fashionable look. A solid color shawl adds an instant touch of elegance to any outfit.
Lightweight, soft wool and wool and silk blend scarves are the perfect addition to your cold weather wardrobe.
A patterned wool shawl will add a beautiful touch of color and style. Function and fashion in one piece.
We make silk shawls that are patterned and plain. Dressy, formal and everyday styles.
They are made from sheer chiffon and Georgette silk or from silk satin. We carefully choose the fabric that will compliment the pattern best.
We often think of wool as being heavy, itchy and bulky.
At Elizabetta we are particularly fond of lightweight wool shawlsfor the cooler months are they are super soft and versatile, allowing you to to wear them indoors to give a pop of color to your outfit, or outdoors as an added layer against the chill.
Pashmina is a term often used incorrectly to describe all kinds of shawls and wraps.
Pashmina is actually a very expensive luxury cashmere fabric woven from the underbelly fur of a Himalayan goat.
This fabric is often made into the rectangular shape of a shawl, but the term pashmina today has come to include any kind of shawl, mostly including inexpensive synthetics.
Confusing, but now you know the correct meaning of the term!
