Feather Pattern Scarf: Shibori on Pure Wool
Tenkozan: Made on the Mountain collection from the Monastery Stitchery and Dye Studio.
These scarves are unique and one of a kind works of art from the monastics and residents who work in the Monastery Dye Studio. Using traditional Japanese Shibori technique, a manual resist dying technique of tying, sewing or folding and clamping which produces a number of different patterns on fabric, the material is dyed with the natural plant dyes we grow in the Monastery Dye Garden.
This feather pattern was designed by artist Joan Gutierrez. While in residence for a year, Joan served as cook, and spent much time working in the Dye Garden and Dye Studio.
We invite you to appreciate the color variations as a reminder of the human touch. This pattern repeats once on each end of the scarf.
Scarves are 14"x 72"
Pure wool is quite thin and sheer.
