ABOUT: Making the Scarves

“Eco-printing” or “eco-dyeing” is a process of placing different botanicals on fabric or paper, and steaming the bundle to transfer the plant’s tannins onto the desired medium.

Using beautiful silk fabrics, we have combined the process of eco-printing with hand-dyeing to create a completely unique scarf. Individually designed and dyed, every scarf is truly one-of-a kind.

Each hand-crafted scarf takes approximately 2 to 3 days to complete, with decisions made along the way regarding plant layout, bundling technique, and color selection.

ABOUT: The Fabrics

All scarves are 100% silk with the exception of the Silk / Wool Blend, which is 63% silk and 37% wool. All scarves have a hand rolled hem with 100% silk thread, with the exception of the new Habotai scarves. These are machine hemmed with silk thread.

Here is a brief description of each fabric:

Silk Satin

Described as the "Rolls Royce" of silks, this top-of-the-line fabric is truly extravagant. It drapes beautifully, and is very supple and rich to the touch.

Silk Habotai

This silk is lighter in weight than satin, and it is extremely soft and lustrous. It has a definite sheen and is very elegant.

Silk Chiffon

A sheer fabric with a soft, beautiful drape and a slightly see-through quality. It has a crepe like texture and is described as “floating like a feather on a summer breeze.” These scarves are the perfect weight for summer and spring, and you can barely feel them around your neck!

Silk Crepe de Chine

This silk has a soft hand, considerable luster, and is not as sheer as chiffon. It has a luxurious texture with a slight crepe finish and a subtle sheen. These are some of our most popular scarves, and are suitable for year-round wearing. You will not be disappointed with this fabric!

Silk and Wool Blend

This blend of 63% silk and 37% wool has a diagonal weave and drapes very well. It is about the same weight as the Crepe de Chine, but is warmer for winter than the other two fabrics. These scarves are very soft, and they have a subtle beauty They take the dye of an onion skin bath extremely well (see below.)

ABOUT: The Dyes

We use an assortment of synthetic and natural dyes so that each scarf is a completely distinctive and special creation.

The synthetic dyes can result in both bold and subtle colors, while a variety of natural dyes are used including turmeric, onion skin, sandalwood and indigo. These dyes result in beautiful and dramatic colors from nature. Specifically, an onion skin bath creates rich shades of chocolate, chestnut, and coffee.

Please note that we have tried to accurately capture the true color of the scarves in the photos, however, in person, some hues may not look identical to the pictures.
