New for Spring/Summer 2012! Each Circle Scarf is individually hand-dyed using immersion techniques (a fancy way of saying to dye something one color as evenly as possible), or using traditional and contemporary Japanese shibori fabric dyeing techniques.
Shibori has been a huge part of my life since I was able to travel to the International Shibori Symposium in Tokyo in 2005. The shibori techniques takes the idea of American tie dye and connects it with the aesthetics of Japan. Each technique stems from the natural world around the community it was started in. Currently, I specialize in itajime shibori which came from communities near forests and uses folding techniques, wood and clamps or rope to create geometric designs that are reminiscent of the shadows of trees. Itajime can also turn out to be very geometric and abstract depending on what techniques you use.
Amber Coppings Designs Organic Cotton Hand-dyed Circle Scarves come with ribbon ties that you can use to gather the fabric to create interesting volume around your neckline making them different from other circle scarves offered. Great for casual outfits, or spice up your favorite dress!
