I've just added this stunning silk scarf to my store. It's made from a beautiful magenta pink vintage Japanese kimono fabric, with images of butterflies and shibori motifs. Shibori is a Japanese dyeing technique that involves folding, wrapping or twisting cloth, binding it and then dyeing it so that the tied area remains dye-free and creates a pattern. The shibori on this scarf would have been created using hundreds of grains of rice. Each grain of rice would have been tied indivually with thread to create the grid pattern. This scarf adds a wonderful pop of colour to any outfit and makes a perfect gift for someone special.
