The 40, or the kid brother that keeps on giving
The smaller size in our scarf range, our 40cm offers a very interesting level of versatility which is, at the very least, as high and wide as its two 60cm and 90cm brothers.
Quite obviously, it does not cover the same needs though. Perfect during spring and summer, it is also very interesting when worn inside, at home, during a party or at the office.
We'll go over some of the most obvious options of how to tie a 40cm scarf together now.

Around the neck, the 40cm can be worn the most traditional way, that is rolled into a twisted band of fabric then tied on the front with a simple knot, adjusting the depth of you scarf to your collar, either tucked in, or untucked.
