Silk Scarf Natural Dye Violet and Indigo Shibori Crepe de Chine Silk Scarf 9"x 53" Net Pattern Natural Indigo and Madder Silk Scarf Hand Dye

$40.00

This light violet and indigo silk scarf was hand dyed by me with natural madder, lac, and indigo dyes.
The natural colors are hard to describe, (and photograph), shades of warm lavender-violet and indigo.
These colors and the shibori pattern were achieved over the course of several days with a variety of techniques.
The design is a little like a net, fish scales. or marbled ripples of dark indigo blue along one edge on a ground of muted lavender-violet.

The fabric is lightly textured crepe de chine silk.
This naturally dyed scarf measures approximately 9" x 53"

This is one of my favorite designs.
Although I've used this technique many times, the result on each scarf or piece of fabric is completely unique.
One of the wonderful parts of hand dyeing with natural materials is the exciting and beautiful surprise when each piece is opened up to the air!

As this scarf was hand dyed with natural materials, there are some speckles and small areas of uneven color.
I've done my best to show the true natural shades of this scarf.
Please remember that each computer monitor displays color in its' own way.
This indigo, lac, and madder dyed scarf should be gently hand washed with mild soap or shampoo in cool water and line dried in the shade to preserve the delicate texture and color.
It may be carefully ironed with medium heat.
