Shibori #266

59.00

Shibori is a Japanese resist technique of painting or dyeing fabric.  I fold, twist and bind my scarf in various ways to create different patterns, depending on how the silk is manipulated before painting.  Movement of the dyes results in all conceivable mixtures of the colors applied. It's an exciting process, as I don't know exactly how the design will turn out until I unwrap my dyed silk! 

Colors in this scarf: Red-orange, rust, dark brown, light olive, off-white.

Type of silk: Type of silk: Lightweight satin - lustrous with a soft drape

Size: 14 x 72 in. (36 x 183 cm.)
