Shimauma is a super light weight silk scarf, very sophisticated in black and white with some grey. Shimauma has been dyed using the traditional Japanese marbling technique of suminagashi, which creates the effect of ripples on water. To produce this effect the scarf is first soaked in a mordant, which fixes the colour, and then dried. Ink is then floated on water, rather than marbling size. First a drop of ink is placed on the water very gently with a paintbrush. In the centre of this a drop of dispersant is placed, then a dot of ink in the centre of that. This process is repeated up to 100 times or so per set of ripples. As more paint and dispersant is added, the ripples flow outwards.

All Marbled Beauty scarves are delivered gift boxed and wrapped in tissue paper.

While every attempt has been made to represent colours correctly, they will vary from screen to screen. However, if you are unhappy with the colour I accept returns, provided you use tracked postage.

All marbled beauty scarves as washable at low temperatures and can be tumble dried on a low setting although we recommend hand washing in warm water and drip drying. Iron with a two spot (UK) iron.

This scarf was a treat to receive, and it is a treat to wear. Glorious colours, wonderful quality. It arrived beautifully and thoughtfully packaged too . It is clear that Anne takes real pride in her craft and her creations

I got this as a gift, and the recipient loved it and thought it was beautiful. Came with a pretty certificate and set of care instructions (which weren't in any way demanding, but helpful to have). I love that these scarves are made through a process which makes each one completely unrepeatable, so you really feel you're giving a special gift.

Something really special! The scarf is beautiful and floaty and made a lovely gift for a friend. It arrived quickly. The ‘certificate of authenticity’ is a nice touch, making it clear that this is a unique, handcrafted product.
