Product Details


This elegant silk scarf is individually hand dyed and hand pleated using the Japanese Arashi Shibori technique.

This silk georgette has been underdyed in shades of soft jade and turquoise, then pleated and areas overdyed in lilac and jade giving colours which flow up and down the ridges and dips of the pleats. It has an overall effect of soft mermaid colours which shimmer due to the ethereal nature of the georgette. Depending on how the scarf is worn, the pleats open or close up changing the colour effect and making it a versatile accessory.

This beautiful scarf is made from silk georgette giving soft pleats and is finished with hand rolled hems.

Your scarf will be delivered beautifully packaged in a Skye Silks gift box.

Arashi Shibori is the Japanese art of pleating and dyeing fabric on a pole.
The silk is first dyed in the base colours, ironed dry and then folded and bound around a pole or tube. The bound silk is pushed up the pole to create pleats and then overdyed with contrasting dye colours. The silk is steamed on the pole to set the dyes and the pleats and can take up to 2 days to dry. This multi-stage method of dyeing creates complex rich colours which glow as the pleats on the silk catch the light.
The pleats are semi-permanent which means the scarves will retain their pleats unless they are washed, therefore, please dry clean the scarves.
Due to the nature of the dyeing method, each piece is unique.
