Made from US-sourced organic cotton, this scarf was hand dyed, hand woven and finished in Brooklyn, NY. Due to the warp yarns being very loosely woven which require a delicate handling, I am considering this a one of a kind sample that will not be reproduced.
This piece was yarn dyed using an organic indigo fermentation vat along with kakishibu and iron. It is then transferred to the loom and hand woven. Kakishibu is a non-toxic and naturally fermented persimmon dye from Japan that creates a range of warm and cool grey tones when used with iron. More about the process and resources can be found here: Kakishibu Time.
Care and considerations:
Hand wash cold with gentle ph-neutral detergent. Roll in between towels to remove excess water, then lay flat to dry. Please take care to not over-launder or store in the sunshine.
Due to the organic process of hand weaving, there may be inconsistencies in the pattern, dye and width that make each piece unique and one of a kind. Pieces made with natural dyes have a tendency to fade over time.
