Silk is a special material and below are some benefits of using Demure Look Silk shawls and pashminas.
Demure Look Silk Scarves are naturally hypoallergenic:

Sensitive Skin: Silk works in two ways to assist sensitive skin.
Thanks to silk’s natural thermostatic properties, silk clothes will keep you warm in winter and cool in summer.
Demure Look Scarves are 100% natural: Silk contains many amino acids in common with the human body, these acids help moisture penetrate the skin (aid in absorption).

Demure Looks newest range is inspired from the Ottoman Art Designs.
In the early arts from the early Ottoman period it is apparent that the art and design were inspired from Byzantine, Mamluk, and Persian traditions. These traditions formed into a new version with Ottoman artistic definition. Significant changes came about with the establishment of the new capital Istanbul. The 14th century is the period that the basis of the Classic Ottoman Art starts. The fabrics of this period involves large motives and very fresh colors.
Textile Fragment, second half of 16th century; Ottoman - Silk and metal thread; a compound weave (satin and twill)
Mirror, second quarter of 16th century; Ottoman, Turkey, Iron, ivory and gold
The reign of Süleyman (popularly known as "the Magnificent" or "the Lawmaker"), often regarded as a "Golden Age," was defined by geographic expansion, trade, and economic growth, as well as cultural and artistic activity.
Iznik Tiles in Topkapi Palace / Istanbul
During the late fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, developments occurred in every artistic field, with those in architecture, calligraphy, manuscript painting, textiles, and ceramics being particularly significant. Apart from Istanbul, various cities in the provinces were also recognized as major artistic and commercial centres: Iznik was renowned for ceramics, Bursa for silks and textiles, Cairo for the production of carpets, and Baghdad for the arts of the book.
In the Ottoman Silk art three roundel dots (motives), tulip, blossom motives together with large pinecones, plane leaves, pomegranate motives are enchanting we believe! What do you think?
