This triple weave silk scarf was first dyed with logwood and cochineal natural dyes to create a rose background. Then I folded and wrapped the scarf with string in a random pattern, and dyed it in indigo. The result is a pattern in rose and blue colors on sheer organza that has dimension.
The triple layer silk scarf was woven in a fair trade village near the east coast of India. The loom has two warps, and a third layer is inserted during the leaving process, creating horizontal lines of silk in between two layers of organza. All the layers of the scarf are woven at once, resulting in a closed tube which can be pulled apart and fashioned in many ways. It allows you to create your style with a two dimensional and three dimensional form.
After dyeing, the scarf has been neutralized in vinegar after dyeing, washed and pressed. You can hand wash and iron it. It is colorfast.
It is scarf for all seasons, and the third layer adds texture. It is long enough to create a cowl by tying the two ends together and wrapping it around your neck twice.
