Silk Scarf - Folds

$108

An elegantly bold shibori indigo silk scarf hand-dyed at our studio using natural dyes extracted from indigo (Indigofera tinctoria).

We created the Folds pattern on this shibori indigo scarf using authentic shibori techniques which ensure that this scarf is entirely unique. Made from an airy silk organza this scarf is strong and durable with a firm hand and a flat, smooth texture. The natural properties of silk help the body to stay cool in summer and warm in winter. It is lightweight enough to be comfortably draped over the shoulders for an elegant look in summer whilst keeping you warm and protected when wrapped around the neck during winter.

This particular design has been created by folding and compressing the fabric with clamps before dyeing it in our indigo vat a minimum of 10 times for a dynamic combination of saturated sky blue and stark white shades. For more information on our dyeing process please visit our process page.

For silk and naturally dyed textiles: avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight or excessive rubbing against white fabric. We recommend hand-washing separately in lukewarm water.

If using detergent please use a mild type which contains no whitening or bleaching agents. If using a washing machine please select gentle wash function with cold water and no spin cycle. Air-dry in a shaded area and iron on low temperature.

Although we wash each textile multiple times before shipping to remove excess dye particles there is still a small possibility of color transference with indigo (during harsh rubbing or other close/vigorous interactions).

When washing indigo-dyed textiles during the first few washes some transparent brown or yellow color may appear in the washing water. This is a normal molecular compound characteristic of our indigo dye. Periodically removing this excess compound will leave colors 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 colors and need to be cared for accordingly for best results. Please enjoy the gradual evolution of your naturally dyed textile.
