Crepe de Chine:
Crepe de Chine fabric, available in several weights and has a slightly crinkled or "pebbled" texture with a gentle, graceful drape, a very soft hand, and a more substantial weight.
A method (originally used in Java, Indonesia) of producing colored designs on textiles by dyeing them, having first applied wax to the parts to be left undyed.

Purchase a scarf for yourself or a loved one.
