CURRENTLY ON EXHIBIT AT GREENHILL CENTER FOR NC ART
It may be purchased from their gallery in person, but is not currently available for online ordering.

This gorgeous scarf is 100% mulberry silk hand dyed in small batches. The warp provides a completely unique color striping effect, and is set densely. Woven with a super skinny weft fiber allows the unique dyed warp colors to dominate. The texture is smooth like butter, as only the highest quality silk can be. 


About all my items:
This item was handwoven by me on a floor loom, mechanically identical to ones used in the 1800s. The art of weaving is considered one of the oldest technologies in the world, and the fundamentals have changed very little in that time. Each item is constructed entirely by me, and begins its journey as loose thread eventually transformed into whole cloth. Every strand of yarn is carefully threaded into the loom, and every inch of fabric is created by building one thread on the next, interweaving them to create intricate patterns. I love weaving precisely because of how tactile it is, and how much time I get to spend touching the yarn and enjoying the colors. Because of this, every textile I weave is a pleasure to touch and look at, and is a unique creation that represents hours of a labor of love, years of study and practice, and centuries of culture and technology.
