Forget That Kabbalah Bracelet: Hindu Prayer Scarves Are The New Spiritual Fad
January 3, 2008
What: Sir Alistair Rai Prayer Scarves, $115
Spotted on: Jessica Alba, Nicole Richie, Drew Barrymore, and Lindsay Lohan
Keeping with the spirituality trend that is abound in Hollywood, stars have been spotted in these Hindu prayer scarves, which are hand embroidered with words like, PEACE, TRUTH, LOVE, and KARMA. According to its creator, the Sir Alistair Rai line is intended to promote global awareness by using fashion as a vehicle to spread insightful and thought-provoking messages. Rai's collection of T-shirts and hoodies carry similar tidings, and sport some unique designs as well. The cause is a noble one, albeit lofty. However, the price of the scarves (from $95 to $139) is not so conducive to Rai's plan for worldwide circulation. For a more accessible option, try this Silk Lace Printed Scarf from Urban Outfitters ($28.00) or the J.Jill Cotton Smocked Scarf ($29.00). They might not have the words in print, but the price will give you peace of mind.
