Description

This shibori silk scarf features a pattern that resembles the intricate patterns of snake’s skin. Made from a light weight silk, it is hand dyed by our master dyer, Ms. Phet. These collections of shibori scarves were inspired by our annual trips to IFAM – the International Folk Art Market in Santa Fe.

There we rub shoulders with, enjoy dinners together, dance under the New Mexican skies with artisans from all over the globe. There is a group of artisans from Mali who work with indigo and shibori, we find their work inspiring.
