The Silk Scarf 'Haircut' Ai Weiwei
Ai Weiwei's Haircut scarf is a real work of art that can be used as a personal accessory or framed in any noble space as a decorative element.
Inspired by his participation in documentary 12, held in Kassel in 2007, when he managed to get 1001 Chinese compatriots to travel to the German city, many of them for the first time.
Haircut is a scarf with a predominance of blue and white colors.It has a particularly fine texture as it is made from a Chinese twill that is known for its high quality. Silkscreened by hand and finished in hand-rolled edges.
The scarf is part of a portfolio called Papercut created by Ai Weiwei and published by Taschen 2019, and is inspired by the colorful pieces of cut-out paper, which are often used to tell stories during holidays and prayers, and as an everyday decoration, tradition which has 2000 years of history.
