Kelagayi is a traditional silk scarf in Azerbaijan. In 2014 kelagayi was included in the list of intangible cultural heritage of UNESCO for its symbolism and craft. Red kelagayi is traditional color worn by brides in many cultures as it represents purity, joy, and celebration. It aims to protect women from envy glares and is treated as a symbol of true love. Illustrated with repeated pattern of Hamsa Hand, it provides defense against the evil eye. In all faiths it is a protective sign that brings its owner happiness, luck, health, and good fortune.
Every kelagayi is handmade in our in-house atelier by local artisans of Azerbaijan. We are dedicated to training young women to nurture a new generation of skillful artisans.
All scarves are intrinsically unique. Slight imperfections that do not compromise the aesthetics or functionality of the product are normal. Actual colors may vary from the color on your screen.
This scarf can be personalised with initials or a name and is a great gift from Azerbaijan.
