Indigo Itajime Little Butterfly Silk Scarf

Price includes service charge.

This habotai silk shawl is light weight, breezy and 22"x96". Itajime shibori was 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 butterfly wings.

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. Shades of lipstick may vary from magenta to light pink to purple. Rest assured it will be just as beautiful!

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