I found this beautiful handwoven silk and cotton scarf at a beautiful studio just outside of Chiang Mai, Thailand. Studio Naenna is a lovely shop and studio that supports a weavers co-operative for the local women. It was a wonderful experience visiting in person and I am looking forward to going back.
This shawl, as it is called there, is a beautiful striped pattern in the traditional Ikat design. The blend of silk and cotton produces an exceptionally light scarf, with a beautiful soft smooth hand. Dark indigo, a lighter blue thread and a silver thread make a beautiful combination of colour. A delicate fringe finishes the scarf.
When you know something is handmade and uses all natural dyes in the process, it makes the decision to buy it so easy. An extra special gift for yourself or someone special.
Approximate Size 25″ x 68″ (62.5cmx170cm)
