Please read my disclaimer about HAND DYED GOODS.
Scarchos are hand dyed silk garments that can be worn as a scarf, poncho, caftan for bellydance or beach cover up. The newest item introduced by A'Kai Silks, these are now offered online at an INTRODUCTORY PRICE. This one is made in the royalty velvet burnout fabric with fringe. I will be selling these in Waikiki for well above the intro price listed on etsy but wanted to give my online dancers/friends the option to grab one before we are in full swing.
Scarchos measure 44 inch by 70 inch and are sewn so that you can slip them over your head ..it's a poncho or wrap that won't fall off and doesn't need a clip to hold it over your shoulders. They can be worn asymmetrically (my favorite) so that they grace the shoulders and produce a beautiful wrap, or turn it slightly to the side and you have a perfect bikini cover up or caftan for bellydance.

Silk bellydance veil for dance or poi (leashes sold separate). Measures the standard 3 yards long by 45 inches wide in 6 mm china habotai silk. Unhemmed ( will not fray).
MADE TO ORDER; please allow two to three weeks for completion. I am not able to process urgent requests at this time.
Colors similar to those shown, due to the silks being hand dyed there may be slight variations. Part of my signature A'Kai Silks ombre designs that have been popular with dancers worldwide for over a decade.
These are not mass produced or dyed overseas. Check my feedback and sales record, A'Kai Silks has established itself as a top name brand.
Since I'm so busy dyeing up silk for skirts, dresses, and other items, instead of listing a complete catalog of in stock items I will be offering made to order options for some items, I'm expecting the large half circles in a week.
