The edges are rolled and hand sewn, and the scarf is washable by hand.

Kurt Schwitters was born in Germany in 1887. He was a multifaceted artist who began as a painter but expanded his practice to poetry, drama, typography, architecture, and acoustic experiments, performance and what is now considered installation art. His greatest works were the result of his experiences during and after both World War I and World War II. The First World War inspired him to create collages and his Mertz works. During the Nazi invasion he was labeled as a degenerate artist and fled to Norway. When Norway was invaded he and his children fled to Scotland where he was considered an enemy alien and interned in several camps. It was in the Hutchinson Camp in the Isle of Man where he was most prolific and he schooled many other artists there. After the war he moved to London and remained in England until his death in 1948
