Our Rio Grande silk scarf is inspired by the Rio’s free-flowing stretch as it winds its way through a remote part of Texas. We captured the imagery of glistening water surrounded by primordial canyon walls of multihued stratified rock, nature’s history narrated with a gorgeous chevron pattern.
The Ori Nui Shibori Technique
: This silk scarf is created using the ori nui shibori technique. In the ori nui technique, the fabric is stitched using a simple running stitch on the edge of a fold, creating two dotted lines. For this scarf, we stitch the ori nui in parallel lines to form neat, even rows.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 ]
