Itajime Silk Scarf – Black

This beautiful and elegant silk scarf is hand-dyed using the itajime shibori technique.

This scarf has been hand-crafted in the workshop of two of India’s foremost Master Craftsmen; Jabbar and Abdullah Khatri in Bhuj, Gujarat. Itajime is one technique of shibori which uses pieces of wood clamped together around sections of folded fabric to resist the dye in particular shapes. Each three meter section of fabric is individually folded, clamped, tied and dyed; and this repeated several times to get layers of colours. It’s a time consuming and exacting technique with bold geometric results.
