Our Onyx silk scarf is inspired by the hypnotic capillary waves that ripple across the surface of water when it is impacted by a falling object.
The Karamatsu Shibori Technique
: This silk scarf is created using the karamatsu (Japanese larch) shibori technique. In the karamatsu technique, the fabric is folded then hand-stitched with semicircles to form circles with branching patterns radiating from the center. For this scarf, we pull the threads prior to dyeing to achieve the intriguing Japanese design.The Art of Shibori
: Shibori is a manual resist-dyeing technique used in many cultures worldwide to create imaginative textures and multihued tones. It shapes, compresses, and secures fabric before dyeing, giving it three-dimensional form through folding, crumpling, stitching, plaiting, or plucking and twisting. Shibori celebrates the fabric's pliancy and its potential for creating shape-resisted designs.Each Scarf is Unique
: Our shibori silk scarves are hand-dyed in small batches using traditional shibori techniques at our dyeing studio in Jaipur, India. Since the process is handcrafted and dynamic, each scarf is wonderfully one-of-a-kind. [ less ]
