Indigo + Arashi Silk Scarf

Indigo + Arashi Silk Scarf


Habotai China silk scarf, hand-rolled (100% silk)

Measures 14" x 92" 

The story behind
The silk was pleated and wrapped around a pole, then tied and scrunched before being dipped four times in our South Carolina grown indigo. I learned this precise technique during my travels in Japan in 2014. I loved it right away! It shows a certain sophistication as this linear pattern resembles the striation of a wild jungle cat. Pair it with a white silk shirt and a black leather jacket, and you can be sure to be the "storm" in town. Arashi means "storm" in Japanese.

Indigo is color fast. The scarf has been pre-washed. Next time, hand-wash it with a light detergent such as Woolite and hang to dry. Press if needed.
