Shibori Silk Scarves

100% silkThe following collection are one-of-a-kind silk scarves, hand-dyed using Japanese Arashi and Kanoko Shibori techniques. The first group are 100% flat crepe silk, medium weight, and more shiny than Habotai silk. It drapes well and the colors are more rich and intense—this is very difficult to show well in photography! The photos reflect the colors as accurately as possible, but with differences in computer displays and browsers there will be some variation. All scarves have hand-stitched rolled edges.

This first group are large scarves measuring 11” x 60.” In addition to being looped or tied around the neck, this is long enough to use as a head-wrap, headband, belt, or a big floppy bow for a ponytail. These are all $42.

The second collection are smaller ones made of Habotai silk, some with heat-set designs. These are 8″ x 54″, great for necks and children. More details and pricing are in their descriptions.

Silk is very strong, only really vulnerable when wet, so these scarves will last for many years. They have been thoroughly rinsed to remove all excess dye but, as with all hand dyed products, there may at first be some minor bleeding. If this occurs, it will not cause the scarf to fade—the colors are quite permanent.

To wash by hand use cool or lukewarm water with a little liquid detergent or hand soap, even shampoo works fine. Soak a little, swish, then rinse a few times in clear water, and air dry. If you wish to iron one, choose the lowest steam heat setting.

They come with a tag and, if requested, tube-style gift packaging. A few are currently on Craigslist and I am happy to do small showings in homes are at events. Since this means my inventory is very changeable I am not putting a shopping cart on the website at this time. Please use the contact form and include the ‘L-#’ or ‘S-#’ if there is a specific scarf you are interested in.

I may eventually be putting some on Etsy and/or Ebay and I will be prepared to ship scarves at that time.
