A luxuriously soft shibori indigo silk scarf hand-dyed at our studio using natural dyes extracted from indigo (Indigofera tinctoria).
We created the Scales pattern on this shibori scarf using authentic stitch-resist shibori techniques which ensure that this scarf is entirely unique. Made from a light and smooth 100% silk fabric this scarf is lightweight enough to be comfortably draped over the shoulders for an elegant look in summer whilst providing a soft pleasing touch to the skin. The natural properties of silk help the body to stay cool in summer and warm in winter.
This particular design was inspired by the work of the late shibori master Motohiko Katano. The fabric was stitch-pleated by hand and the motif was stitched through several layers of fabric to create mirrored repeats. The entire piece was then dyed in our indigo vat a minimum of 10 times for a dynamic combination of deep midnight blue, stark white and mysterious luminous blending of the two shades.

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.
