Indigo Scarf with Round Sashiko Patch

90.00

This is a long, beautiful panel of indigo-dyed cotton. A little mended, it was bought to be used to fix another piece of utility or to be sashiko-stitched together with other panels to create something. But as at least a century has passed, that day never came. The dye has a beautiful fade, not unlike what today is artificially created in chemically dyed fabrics such as jeans. Such a long piece of clean fabric as old as this one is extremely rare. It makes for a beautiful accessory such as a simple neck scarf.

Fabric  

Cotton homespun and hand-loomed. All natural dyeing techniques.

Measurements   

63 x 31 cm

24,8 x 12,2 in

  • The fabric has been professionally cleaned and carefully ironed to preserve the organic dye
  • Light color indigo due to a beautiful century old fade
  • Two small patches

  • Beautiful as accessory, such as a neck scarf
