When my mother gave me a silk scarf for my birthday five years ago, I had no idea how useful, in fact essential it would become. It has travelled the world with me and is packed for every trip.
On flights, it’s ideal when the air gets chilly, especially on short haul flights when there are no blankets especially if you fly with budget airlines.
Some Islamic countries have cultures and customs that make wearing a hijab (scarf) compulsory, such as Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Iran. Sometimes a scarf is perfect for hiding away a bad hair day, or keeping salt spray and the effects of drying wind at bay.
How about as a bag for extra bananas?
Use as a baby sling (like a stork holds in its beak) or if you unexpectedly find a baby under a cabbage. Alternatively, learn how to tie one properly as shown in the Youtube video here.
Can be folded into a triangle and used as a sling. Hopefully you won’t ever need to do this.
