Hand dyed silk scarf using two traditional techniques: Bandhani and Kantha. Bandhani (tie dye) is a traditional dye technique where very small dots of the cloth are tied with string to resist the dye. The white fabric is then dyed with natural indigo. The scarf has a interesting puckered texture due to the dye process. This scarf then has a fine hand stitched edge around all edges of kantha stitches (running stitches). The combination of techniques makes for a beautiful and unusual scarf. A very nice weight for all seasons. 100% silk.
Caution: Indigo will rub off a bit onto your clothing. Wear accordingly.
Size: approx. 13" x 72”
Care: dry clean to retain the texture.
Country of origin: India
