A gorgeously soft shibori indigo silk shawl hand-dyed at our studio using natural dyes extracted from indigo (Indigofera tinctoria) and marigold flowers (Tagetes erecta).
We created the Astra pattern on this shibori indigo silk shawl using authentic stitch-resist shibori techniques which ensure that this shawl is entirely unique. Made from velvety smooth 100% pure satin weave silk this scarf provides a soft pleasing touch to the skin and is of a large enough size to provide plenty of styling variations. The natural properties of silk help the body to stay cool in summer and warm in winter.
The design on this particular piece was created by first dyeing the scarf in an extract of marigold flowers (Tagetes erecta) to achieve a background of gentle yellow. We then stitched and tied the outline of each individual motif before over-dyeing the entire piece in our indigo vat. Some sections were opened mid-way to receive more indigo than others to create spheres of bright blue, yellow, and white amidst a background of dark indigo.

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.
