This Habotai 8mm or “China Silk” scarf is lightweight & airy in feel, but bold in design. It has a hint of batik style - be sure to check the details. The Stars & Stripes theme shows through bravely, with a great deal of artistic license to add curiosity. This scarf could be paired with a very formal outfit or just added for fun at a summer picnic.

I have hand painted this unusually scarf (~27”x 29”) with wardrobe versatility in mind as the two opposite corners are in different tones, the blue/purple for one look and the red/pink for another.

I brush in the dyes - this allows me to control the shading of the colour. I then use wax to capture and save the colour before the next dye application. This creates multiple layers of colour and patterns. After I finish with the artwork, the wax is mostly ironed out and then “steamed” to set dyes on a molecular level, leaving only the feeling of silk. From then on the silk scarves can easily be hand washed.

Basic shipping in North America is free with all my scarves but you are responsible for any taxes and duties. And the hat used in the photos is a "prop" and does not come with the scarves.
