Handwoven Clamp Dye Itajime Shibori 300 count Check Muslin Scarf

$57 Incl of GST

This is a very special scarf in rare 300 count fine muslin in black, white and grey color combination. This pattern involved a complex process as one can observe different shades of graduating greys here with both checks and tie dye dots in place. There is a beautiful sense of depth that has been achieved here using clamp dye (Itajime Shibori) technique.

There are very few spinners and weaver artisans left in rural West Bengal who can weave this quality fine muslin. This is a labor intensive process and rural artisans due to low wages often find it economically unsustainable to pursue this kind of spinning and weaving. Climate change is also a factor as spinning and weaving this kind of textile requires higher humidity, so often, artisans work in morning and evenings on finer muslins. Clamp Dyed in Itajime Shibori technique that originated in Japan, by  amazingly talented Abdullah Khatri ji and his team in Kutch. We had very specific color combinations in mind when we approached him for this project, we are delighted with the results!

We hope these remind us to pause and reflect on the many skilled hands that make the ‘Handmade’ possible.   These can be used as headscarf, headband, neck scarf or even as a belt on a dress, so many styling possibilities, one mindfully designed, exquisitely handmade and ethically sourced scarf.
