Description

This scarf has been handwoven on a manual wooden loom operated by hand and foot power. Wooden pedals are pressed in a rotating sequence to create the lifting pattern which is slowly woven into the fabric with each added weft thread. These threads are added one by one from a bobbin held inside a boat shuttle thrown through the open warp threads, left to right and back again, over and over, in a process that has altered little over many centuries. To create the length of a scarf approximately two thousand weft threads will be woven through the warp and this warp itself will be made from between 600 – 900 individual threads depending on the width of the scarf.


CARE INSTRUCTIONS

Silk scarves can be handwashed in hand hot water with a gentle detergent.

DO NOT SCRUB OR WRING OUT THE FABRIC

Squeeze out excess water by compressing the wet fabric between the hands and leave to dry naturally. When dry the scarf may be steam ironed. Please contact us if you require more details on how to care for your scarf.
