Vera Neumann, (1907-1993) is known world wide as “Vera”. She loved nature, people and travel and this is reflected in her art. She used vivid, bold, brilliant colors, floral patterns and sometimes the ladybug trademark. Her scarves are highly collectable; her designs are still fashionable today - as they never go out of style. Timeless!!!!We have traveled from San Diego to San Francisco in search of Vera scarves. We discovered them in Antique Shops, Thrift stores and at Estate Sales. We found some Vera scarves dating from the late 1940’s early 1950’s and some rare and hard to find items.
Vera began her business in 1947. Here are some pictures of her early scarves that we found this summer in California. Vera used the ladybug because it means "Happiness". The scarf below is an example of one of Vera's early works. You will notice that the Vera signature has no copyright mark.
We also found several floral scarves this summer. Some were made of silk, and a combination of vinyl and silk, and some were printed on sheer silk fabric.
Vera also painted paisleys however; she had her own version of a paisley print. Paisleys were very popular in the 1960's and 1970's and agian today.

We just started looking through the fall fashion magazines, for example, Bazaar and on page 100 they talk about Bright and Playful patterns are in right now. If you are sticking to a budget this fall or are strapped for cash you still can have the latest look with out the high prices by accessorizing and updating your outfits with vintage scarves.
Scarves are a wonderful accessory can find vintage scarves in all the latest prints for fall at great prices. “Animal motifs, whimsical, tropical and floral prints” are the rage right now. Here are some of the prints that you will find at Razberry Boutique.

We found the colorful checker board scarf last Sunday in San Juan Batista, California in an antique shop. This scarf will brighten up a a fall day with just the right amount of color.
We also found a Schiaparelli - About Elsa Schiaparelli- she was an Italian fashion designer who was regarded as one of the most prominent figures in fashion design in the 1920's - 1950's . She also designed clothing for movies during the 1930's through the 1950's. Stars like Greta Garbo, May West wore here designs. Schiaparelli scarves are hard to find - we tracked this one down in an antique store in Central California.

We just reviewed our fall collection of scarves and found 16 plaid scarves in our store. We have plaids by Vera Neumann, Pendleton, Albert Nipon, and Echo. We also have some non designer scarves – we can not overlook the non-designers – they don’t have to have a designer signature to be a work of art.
