The French word for silk is foulard, but do you know the word’s origin and how it inspired the creation of this fascinating scarf? Foulard comes from two different French words fou and lard. Fou is insane and lard is bacon. Foulard is therefore insane bacon. The name originates from an old story of a French butcher and his wife discovering a Chinese silk worm sitting atop a slab of bacon creating its cocoon of silk. This cool silk scarf takes the story a new direction, allowing you to wear a silky smooth scarf that looks just like bacon.
When the Foulard scarf arrives at your home, it looks like a slab of freshly sliced bacon, very delicious bacon. We do wonder if the scarf should carry a warning label, “May cause men to nibble on your neck.”
