Shibori Natural Dye Cotton Scarf - Festival - Long
A light and airy shibori cotton scarf hand-dyed at our studio using natural dyes extracted from indigo (Indigofera tinctoria), gourka tree bark (Garcinia xanthochymus) and stick lac (Kerria lacca).
We created the pattern on this shibori cotton scarf using authentic stitch-resist shibori techniques ensuring that this scarf is entirely unique. The boldly playful design is complemented by regularly spaced light-toned warp threads running down the fabric. Made from lightweight cotton this scarf easily packs down to a perfectly compact companion for summertime outings.
The design on this particular piece was created by stitch-pleating the fabric and dyeing it in extracts of lac and gourka tree bark. We then over-dyed the piece in our indigo vat for a fun combination of joyful colours. For more information on our dyeing process please visit our process page.

Avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight or excessive rubbing against white fabric. We recommend hand-washing separately in lukewarm water with mild detergent which contains no whitening or bleaching agents. If using a washing machine please select gentle wash function with cold water. Please air-dry in a shaded area. Iron on low temperature.
Although we wash each textile multiple times before shipping to remove excess dye particles there is still a possibility of colour transference occurring (during harsh rubbing or other close/vigorous interactions).
During the first few washes some brown or yellow pigment may appear in the water. This is normal and is a chemical compound characteristic of our indigo dye. Periodically removing this excess pigment will leave colours more vivid than before.
Synthetically dyed textiles are beautiful immediately after dyeing, while textiles dyed with indigo become more beautiful over time, developing their own characteristic shades with each day of use. Natural dyes are living colours and need to be cared for accordingly for best results. Please enjoy the gradual evolution of your naturally dyed textile.
