This is a 100% pure Habotai (china) silk, folded and bound in a Kumo Shibori spiderweb pattern, then hand-dyed in a real indigo bath, producing a classic blue and white pattern. The scarf is then washed and then pressed flat to reveal the awesome pattern inside.

Scarf dimensions are 14x72".

Hand-wash warm with mild detergent only.

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.
