A beautiful Indigo dye linen scarf, this item was folded and pleated using Arashi shibori technique. Shibori is a Japanese dyeing technique. Folding, stitching, or bunching and binding cloth prepare the fabric for dyeing. In Japan, the shibori fabric is dyed in a vat of Indigo dye. It truly is a piece of wearable art! The measurements of this gorgeous indigo dyed linen scarf are 156cm x 11cm.
An elegant Indigo dyed scarf, it is one of a kind
Scarves are an inexpensive, feminine and classy accessory any woman can use. Enjoy this piece of wearable art often and in various situations, whether at work or at play. My scarves are designed in a large variety of colours and styles.
I use different fabrics (silk, cotton, linen). Wear my scarves in several ways. This linen scarf can compliment a blouse, dress or jacket. Able to be tied in all manner of ways, scarves enhance any outfit and make compelling fashion statement. It is my hope, that the woman who owns one of my scarves feels that she has an item that is something completely exclusive. Wearing this piece of wearable art often and in various situations, whether at work or at play shows an expression of her individuality.
For insight into some of my experiments with shibori and natural dyes techniques, I have described them in these short texts:
I use several different techniques to produce these original scarves, including airbrush, natural dyeing, indigo and shibori.
For many years, my dedication was to printmaking: intaglio, silkscreen and lithography
I studied at Montreal Museum of Fine Art, School of Art & Design and later went on to study Fine Art and Art Education, at University. My main interest, at the time was silkscreen. Later, I returned to Ontario, where I enrolled in a course in Surface Design at OCA, in Toronto. Silkscreen printing was the technique used. Now, I am working with natural dyes and Indigo shibori techniques.
