I was scrolling through Instagram one day and came across the most gorgeous scarf – the Dellrose Rosa Scarf. It happened to be perfect timing as earlier that week one of my followers asked me to do a how-to on different ways to wear and tie scarfs. One of the most requested post topics I get from you guys is to do more styling tips + tricks – so really this was all perfect timing and I was MEANT to have this gorgeous scarf. #illtakeit
There are many, many different methods to incorporate scarfs into your wardrobe, but if you aren't familiar with wearing them it can be a bit daunting trying to think of different variations. Dellrose is a small family company that produces 100% silk scarfs made in Lake Como, Italy. Just typing that sentence made me swoon y’all! The Rosa is beautiful, but really that’s an understatement. But, Dellrose doesn't just make beautiful scarfs, they are also founded on the idea of giving back - which is huge to me.
The idea for the company came when the co-founder's, Natalie, grandmother was sick with cancer. She battled for years and during that time she underwent chemo which unfortunately made her hair fall out. Natalie knew she wanted to start a company built on helping every woman look and feel her best, no matter her situation. Dellrose was created to give women a product that brings joy into women’s life, and also serves as a way to give back. Scarfs seemed like the perfect marriage of these two ideas. They now have a long-term partnership with the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center where they donate 1 out of every 10 scarfs.
They're also being generous to the Extra readers by giving 20% off your entire purchase on their site with code EXTRA20.
Once scarfs were decided on, Natalie and her fiancé Phillipp traveled around Europe, where they were living at the time [umm jelly], to find the best manufacturer for their scarfs. The one they ended up choosing is a family owned business that has been around for generations and that has since grown to one of the most well-known scarf makers in the region. They also produce for small companies like Dellrose as well as top luxury brands. Natalie says of their Lake Como partner in manufacturing:
Not only were their capabilities impressive, but they put heart and soul into their designs and understood what starting a business from scratch was like as their business was built on the same spirit.
The product they ended up with is exactly what they wanted: a quality, luxury scarves for a fraction of the cost of comparable quality scarfs (that are four times the price!). Dellrose scarves are affordable enough for the average girl and I can attest to the quality of this scarf. I twisted, tied, and roughed up this scarf shooting this post and its honestly still in pristine shape compared to any other scarf I've had. I actually went out to dinner the other night with it on my purse and got asked if it was this Dior scarf! What a compliment!

Lastly, how do you wash and care for silk?
A: We recommend dry clean only for our silk scarves. If this is not available, hand washing your silk scarf in cold water is also an option. Use a delicate detergent and lightly work it into the silk. After washing, let your scarf air-dry to avoid any damage. Finish by ironing your scarf for silky perfection!
