Arashi Shibori Silk Scarves

What I've been doing lately. I've been currently pretty busy with fiber work. I've been using the Arashi Shibori process to create one-of-a-kind silk scarves. Some I leave with the result of the discharge process.
They can be used in diverse ways: as neck scarves of course, but also as belts and headbands. I also plan to use some in future fiber art work.

Others I hand paint. This is a close up of part of a hand-painted scarf.

And another.

This is what the scarf looks like before painting and
I leave some like this as I love this look. It can be worn with anything.

These scarves are 52 inches long and 11 inches wide. They are perfect year round as the silk is so comfortable, adjusts to body temperature and it keeps drafts off the neck and down the back. They are also light enough for spring and summer use.

Contact me if you are interested in purchasing these one-of-a kind pieces of wearable art.
