Scarves as Art Cloth?

Are scarves Art Cloth?

Many of my scarf customers tell me that they think of them as art and hang them where they can see them when they are not wearing them. As an artist I find this flattering... but why? Is a scarf less valuable then wall work? Is it just the market value that determines this? Interesting questions.

When I am working on creating the cloth I have already determined if it is for the wall or the body. I definitely spend more energy on how I compose for the wall. It will not have the advantage of being wrapped around a body to alter the composition. Even in my more all over print wall works I am wrestling with composition.
