Cochineal & Indigo Petal Itajime Silk Scarf

70.00

Price includes service charge.

This habotai silk shawl is light weight, breezy and 22"x96". The scarf was first dyed in a bath of cochineal dye. Itajime shibori was then applied (a shaped-resist technique) and then dipped in natural indigo. A tear shape cut from acrylic or wood is placed outside the folds and held with C-clamps. The shape prevent the dye from penetrating the fabric it covers.The result is a pleated cloth with a deep blue design and bright white petals.

Due to running different dye vats and how far the dye penetrates each scarf, the color may be a slightly different shade to the one shown. Rest assured it will be just as beautiful!

The scarf was pre-washed. Hand wash with a mild detergent and press.
