Vera Scarves

I love vintage scarves. They’re comfortable and versatile and a great way to spruce up any outfit! When shopping for vintage scarves, you’ve probably come across brightly colored scarves with geometric shapes and patterns with the name Vera or a ladybug in the corner. These are Vera Scarves, designed by artist Vera Neumann.

Her first signature scarf was created in the 1940s where she used parachute silk from an army surplus store and transferred her signature onto the fabric.  This immediately led to national popularity and a high demand for “Vera Scarves with women like Marilyn Monroe and Grace Kelly.

Vera sold her business in the 1960s but continued to stay involved in the creative process and production of her scarves.  She remained a working artist until her death in 1993. Her business is now called The Vera Company.

Visit The Vera Company blog to read up on all things Vera! Many companies including Anthropologie, Crate and Barrel and Sephora have drawn inspiration from Vera Neumann’s colorful scarves.

Vera Scarves can be found online at Ebay and Etsy. Also check out your local flea markets and vintage stores as well. You can even learn how to date your Vera Scarf!
