Calder #1, 2001

100% silk scarf

According to the accompanying label, in 1949 Calder was commissioned by the New York firm Laverne Originals to create two designs for use as fabric and wallpaper. The present design - Calder # 1, a beautiful silk scarf was re-introduced by Paperball in 2001 with special authorization from the Estate of Alexander Calder. It is a great conversation piece and a lovely vintage piece of fashion design and wearable art.
