This is a flat silk chiffon scarf from Red Eft Shibori Studios. The scarf is 100% pure light gauzy silk chiffon, folded and clamped in the Shibori & Orizomegami style, then hand-dyed in purple, turquoise and avocado colors. the scarf is washed and then pressed flat to reveal the awesome pattern inside.

Starting dimensions are 11x90" but the scarf shrinks when washed so the finished dimensions are approx. 9x79".

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.
