This tussah silk shawl is dyed with osage natural dye to create a brilliant lemon yellow hue. Hand woven in a small fair trade village in India, the weaver has incorporated a random linear design. Silk is inlaid into the weft on the loom, creating a raised line on the fabric.
After dyeing the shawl was neutralized in a vinegar bath and washed three times. Very easy to care, can be machine washed on delicate cycle. Colorfast. Hang to dry, and iron if desired. The more it is washed, the softer the silk shawl becomes. The dye is colorfast.
Lightweight, travel friendly, and great for summer weddings.
