kanako floral silk scarf

25.00

The design on this delicate silk scarf has been created using the traditional dye and resist technique called kanoko shibori. The motif is sketched onto the silk and then each dot is individually hand tied along the lines to create a miniature tie dye effect which makes up the larger pattern.

Historically kanoko shibori would be ironed flat at the end of the process until imitations of the art form began to appear. The symbolic texture of kanoko shibori is now left out of respect for the process of the dying art form and increase the value of the genuine handicraft.
