One of a kind hand dyed scarves using 100% natural indigo dye in the ancient traditional Japanese shibori dyeing technique of color-resist dyeing. It can involve intricate folds, stitches, clamping and also using stones, wood and other elements, which yield one-of-a-kind designs and patterns. Traditionally an indigo dye bath is used to create shibori techniques. The indigo vat is like a living creature – no two vats being quite the same. All the scarves are hand-dyed in small batches using water-based natural indigo dyes. Because of the inevitable variables, (in the folding, stitching, nature of that particular ‘vat’, length of immersion etc), no two pieces will be the same.
