Handwoven Indigo Check Scarf
This handwoven scarf has textured and tweedy feel, perfect for cool winter nights and breezy autumn days.
Yarns have been hand-spun and naturally dyed with indigo by artisans in Mexico and Northern Thailand. After making their way to Australia I warp them onto the loom, alternating coloured threads (helping create the checkered pattern). Next, the fabric is handwoven thread by thread over many hours. Then, it's cut off the loom and soaked in warm water to bring the weave to life. After the cloth is dry it is pinned and stitched together.
Each scarf is warped onto the loom exactly to pattern, ensuring no wastage and no cutting. Both ends are hem-stitched to fix the threads in place.
