PandaSilk offers silk scarves of various types. There are four main types of scarves available at PandaSilk online shop.
A shawl is a rectangular/triangular/square larger item wrapped around the body or draped over the shoulders. It is worn for decorative purposes (to accent an outfit or cover bare shoulders in formal attire), religious purposes, or to keep warm.
A stole is similar to a shawl, but made of elegant fabric, narrower in width, and long enough to drape around the body. It probably is related to the ancient Roman stola (the woman’s version of the toga). It’s generally worn by women. The wide decorative sash draped over the shoulders for graduation or liturgical purposes is also referred to as a stole and is worn by men and women.
Silk oversized square scarf is worn as a head scarf, worn as a shawl wrapped around the shoulders, or worn around the hips.
A neckscarf, neckerchief, or bandana is a smaller square scarf usually 20-22 inches wide. Our neckscarf is 21″×21″.
