Raw Silk is such a beautiful material. It's closer to the drape of linen than your traditional silk and has a slight nubby texture. It's structured yet supple, textured yet soft and the raw edge creates such a fun, rustic look look. Plus raw silk is excellent at regulating temperature, keeping you warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
I have completely fallen head over heels in love with silk and it's no wonder why. Silk helps regulate temperature, keeping your cool in the summer and warm in the winter, is hypoallergenic and so luxurious. This silk bandana is handmade with rustic, raw silk and hand dyed in my small kitchen in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Dyed with Cochineal, Eucalyptus Leaves, Onion Skins, Osage Bark and Iron
Measures 21" x 21" - your typical bandana size, creating a fab chic look. This size can be worn around the neck, your bag or wrist, in your hair or used as a sacred altar cloth
The raw edge is reinforced with an invisible straight stitch, allowing the edges to fray, but only up to the stitch line
Natural bundle dying is a slow but wonderful process. Each bandana is dyed with plants, bugs and minerals which are carefully placed on each individual bandana, tightly wrapped, steamed and left to rest for over 24 hours; a slow, beautiful process to produce the natural color you see here. This means that every piece is unique and no two are alike!
