Stunning silk scarves with beautiful colors and patterns made by a fermentation of indigo powder, and for some by the interaction of indigo and ice - as it melts in our California sunshine it draws the extracts with it and paints the silks with beautiful, flowy colors. Made in micro-batches with very limited quantities.
100% mulberry silk satin, one side has a beautiful sheen and the other is matte. Ethically hemmed in India, dyed in our farm studio in California.
Bandanas are 22x22in, Ribbon scarves are 4.5x36in. Lovely in any season, they can be worn in your hair, around your neck, tied to a bag, wrapped around a gift…versatile and always beautiful. Each piece is one-of-a-kind and cannot be replicated - so special! Indigo can be sensitive to sunlight so avoid direct sunlight to preserve the natural color as long as possible. Hand wash gently in warm water with pH neutral soap and hang dry out of direct sunlight.
In this collection:
Michelangelo Sky, inspired by the tones of the Sistine Chapel ceiling, is ice-dyed with Himalayan rhubarb and then over-dyed with final dips of an organic indigo bath that has had most of the blue pigment removed, resulting in a lovely peachy rust with light minty blue surrounding.
Duck Egg Blue is dyed mid-way through an organic indigo vat, resulting in a soft, mediu-light blue with greenish undertones.
Shibori Inspired is dyed in a concentrated organic indigo vat with folds and crumples, creating interesting patterns of saturation and negative space where the blue dye penetrated the silk fibers.
