soft, floaty blue scarf in silk chiffon.
This soft, flowing scarf was made from vintage sari. The fabric is a blue chiffon that has been tie-dyed in the leheria style (see below for an explanation of these techniques).
This fabric is absolutely stunning. it looks like flowing water...
the scarf is 40 inches long by 20 inches wide.
The technique gets its name from the Indian word for "wave" because of the beautiful wavy stripes it produces. The fabric is rolled diagonally, tied in various places, and then dyed in vegetable dye. This technique is traditionally practiced in Rajasthan, India.
I purchase these vintage textiles from a single mother in Delhi. She says she wants to share her country's beautiful fabrics with the world. I trust her implicitly. She goes out on trips to small villages in remote parts of India and buys saris and other fabrics from the women there. In this way, she is contributing to the village economy as well as supporting herself and her son. I love being part of this network.
This is a vintage sari and may have signs of wear such as small, light stains or tiny holes. I do my very best to insure that each piece is as close to perfect as possible, but please remember that they came from saris that have been worn and loved by one or more women. If there is something that is unacceptable to you, that i missed, i will gladly take the piece back.
These may be steamed, dry cleaned, or carefully hand washed in cold water.
