Poncanna : Rust Kanoko Shibori Silk Scarf

Poncanna : Rust Kanoko Shibori Silk Scarf

This irresistible unisex scarf is handcrafted with utmost care, perseverance and skill by artisans in the Gujarat region of India, each piece is a unique treasure of stories that reminiscence their history and life. The fabric used is exceptionally soft satin gajji silk which is exclusively woven in Gujarat.

Nearly 8200 fine dots are meticulously tied by women artisans on this piece, used as a resist to create the pattern and texture. Each piece takes two - three months to be tied. Once tied, it is sent to male artisans for dyeing using eco-friendly dyes. The cloth sensitively retains the memory of the making process, creating a three dimensional product. 

The technique used is popularly know as kanoko shibori, which dates in India from the 5th century and is said to have traveled from India to China and later to Japan.
