Birds are a popular motif in women’s fashion, and Roza Khamitova, a Melbourne-based fashion designer originally from Kazakhstan, has created a series of scarves that definitely exploit the bird motif in a creative way. Each scarf, when worn as a shawl, creates the illusion that the person wearing it has enormous beautiful bird wings.
The designs used on these digitally printed scarves were hand-painted by Roza, who maintains an Etsy e-shop called “Shovava” highlighting her work. Most of her designs come in a variety of colors. She claims that the natural materials that she uses (primarily cotton) are no-itch, non-toxic and recyclable.
