Folksight Crane Silk Scarf


Traditional Vietnamese folktales come to life through the vibrant designs on Folksight’s silk scarves. Using Vietnamese silk as a canvas, the designers aim to illustrate the tales of their forefathers with detailed and eye-catching prints and colours. In Vietnamese mythology, the Eastern Sarus crane is the bird sent from heaven to ferry those destined for eternal life. Huge yet ethereal, migrating between water and sky, it courts its mate while dancing to an inner music, bowing, arching, and springing into the air with wings spread in ecstasy. The pair will remain faithful for life, which may exceed 20 years. For its dance and its monogamy, the crane is also believed to be a symbol of ardent courtship and conjugal love.
