Years ago, a friend of a friend was living in Cambodia and came back to the city laden with traditional Cambodian scarves called krama. Mine was a deep iridescent blue silk, with purple and yellow threads running through the weave. I got a lot of use out of it, and even wore it with other scarves when Winter rolled around.

When my girl guinea pig, Caramella passed, I wrapped her in my krama and laid her to rest. It was a fitting way to say goodbye to my beautiful piggie and a lovely scarf. On a random thrift day, I found this krama amongst the jumble of what-nots. It's as simple, stylish and striking as my last one.

I'll have this up in my Hello My Friend shop, but for now enjoying its pairing with this simple grey tee.
