Indigo + Itajime Silk Scarf

Indigo + Itajime Silk Scarf


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

Measures 14" x 92" 

The story behind
The silk was folded triangle style, then a teardrop wooden shape was clamped tightly, sandwiching the fabric before being dipped four times in our South Carolina grown indigo. I learned this folding technique during my travels in Japan in 2014 and could imagine so many possibilities for creating vibrant textiles. Itajime shows a certain lightness as this pattern resembles the wings of a butterfly or the petals of a flower. Pair it with a sunny yellow sundress for a timeless look you will love.

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.
