Blue, Magenta, White Black Itajime Zig Zag Double Woven Silk Habotai Scarf

140.00

Starting with a white rectangle of double woven silk habotai, I folded the fabric using an itajime shibori method of resist then dyed multiple times with different colors until I ended up with the result you see here.

One of my favorite things about using shibori techniques are the unexpected patterns that occur from resists. Each twist and tie makes a new unique pattern for you to wear and you can continue to explore how to wear the scarf for years!

I usually work with silk or silk-like fabrics because I enjoy how in the summer the fabrics breathe easy against the skin, while in the winter the bright colors of the dye bring light to an otherwise dull day.

The interesting thing about the double woven silk habotai I use, is that one side is bright and shiny while the other is matte. This gives you even more to have fun with, playing with all the different ways to wear it.
