Organic cotton and bamboo Scarf designed by Maisie at Traceless on the Isles of Scilly.
Each one is hand dyed and dried in the Scilly sunshine, using traditional Shibori methods so each one is unique in pattern and indigo shades will vary slightly.
Traditionally, a white cloth (usually silk, hemp, or cotton) was folded, bunched, or twisted, then tied, and finally dipped into a natural indigo dye. Over the centuries, artisans have developed many methods and distinctive styles. This is a striped style.
Shibori is the Japanese word for a variety of ways of embellishing textiles by shaping cloth and securing it before dyeing. Cloth shaped by these methods is secured in a number of ways, such as binding and knotting.
