Indigo dyed japanese cotton scarf, 35...
Indigo dyed japanese cotton scarf, 35 x 152 cm
Sarashi cotton fabric is a traditional japanese fabric, used for wrapping women's bellies during pregnancy and alos used for "tenuigi" which are basically "everyday clothes" used for head wrappings, towels etc. I cut this fabric into scarf-sized pieces and dyed it with indigo in an iron and lime vat. The hems are handsewn with japanese silk thread.
Machine or handwash, 30°, with a bit of household vinegar. It is advised to store indigo-dyed textiles, especially cottons or linens, rolled instead of folded. To ensure a good rub and washfastness, this scarf has been dipped many, many times...
