This Bubble Scarf is a deep red rust color background with emerald green bubbles. Scarf measures approx 50 inches long and is shown doubled in the photos.

BUBBLE SCARVES are made by hand from pure white silk, shibori wrapped and hand dyed. They are lightweight and colorful and a fun, fabulous addition to any outfit. These scarves start off as pure 8mm Habotai flat silk pieces with rolled hems, then I wrap, dye and steam set the bubbles. These bubbles are light and airy, you just want to reach out and touch them!!! From the Red Eft Shibori Studios...

Our Shibori Scarves cannot be washed in water although they do hold up VERY well to wear and weather. Dry Clean Only. Scarves will come with a care card detailing the care instructions.

Care instructions for your Shibori scarf
1.Dry Clean only to preserve the unique texture. The colors and patterns will remain after washing but the texture will not.
2.If scarf gets damp (due to weather), do not stretch. Place on a flat surface and let dry completely. Do not iron.
3.Do not hang. Store coiled up on flat surface or in a plastic bag. Pack similarly.

Shibori is the traditional Japanese form of resist dyeing which I have modified with new dyes, colors and patterns to create my silk pleated shibori scarves.

Each sculptural scarf begins with a rectangular piece of fabric which is folded, pleated, wrapped, and molded into the desired pattern. The scarf is then dyed through various immersion, painting, overlay or discharging techniques, and steamed to set the color and texture. The pattern of the scarf determines how the dyes can penetrate and interact with the fiber. The full emergence and three-dimensional nature of each unique pattern can only be seen when the scarf is dry and released from the securing ties.
