Authentic Russian Shawl Giveaway by Mulberry Whisper


As you might be aware, I sell vintage Russian shawls and scarves through my Etsy shop, Mulberry Whisper. Here in Uzbekistan I have a great opportunity to find some rare Russian shawls which have been stored in chests for many years, and I have had some terrific finds. When they are in good condition, we sell them as is, and if they are damaged, we upcycle them. We also offer cotton Russian shawls which are wonderful for a warmer time of the year and perfect for those who do not wear wool. We have been quite successull and we greatly enjoy this part of our activity. All of our shawls are authentic Russian shawls produced at the Pavlovo Posad Manufacture, and in most cases I can tell you about the artist who created them, the years of production, and other details. We know what we sell and will never offer fakes.

Now I want to share a piece of my luck with you by giving away this lovely medium sized Russian scarf worth 30$. This is a fine example of the classic Russian shawl: bright coral flowers (of course there are roses among then) and kelly green leaves, accompanied by bright decorative elements, on soft off-white background. You can see the details here.

By the way, my cousin who is based in Wisconsin, also has some vintage Russian shawls for sale at Mulberry Terrace, so if you are in the US and prefer local shopping, you can buy something from him.

  3. This shawl is beautiful! Such shawls are increasingly popular - at least here, in Poland. Some let's say 10-15 years ago such patterns were associated with traditional dresses, as seen in museums, or worn by elderly women. And nowadays they are part of street fashion.
    Anyway, an authentic one is a real treasure.

    1. Thank you! I do wear mine a lot, they are very comfortable both for the street and work, and also when you are flying. It is a good thing that they are sturdy. There are not many people around who wear them, but some of my friends follow my example now.
