Classic Literary Scarves Allow You to Literally Wrap Yourself Up in a Good Book

Lovers of literature, you can now literally wrap yourself up in a good book. The Thailand-based Etsy shop FreshComfy creates large–up to 150 inches long–chiffon scarves that pay homage to beloved novels. Classics such as Pride and Prejudice, To Kill a Mockingbird, and The Lord of the Rings adorn these fashion accessories, along with a newer favorite, Harry Potter.

Many of FreshComfy's scarves showcase the beautiful book covers of classics, including the iconic blue face from The Great Gatsby–a bold design that's sure to be a statement piece for any outfit. J.D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye has a similarly stunning effect. While book covers are certainly striking, Pimolpan of FreshComfy also honors the words that have made these publications unforgettable. The Little Prince and Alice in Wonderland have the text intermingled between accompanying illustrations.

Check out some of our favorites, below, and see the complete collection in the FreshComfy Etsy shop.
