Indonesian silk batik, sari and dip dyed silk and wool mix scarves
Now that the weather is getting cooler, my thoughts have turned towards scarves. Since winter coats are usually dull in colour, I aimed for bright, rich hues and patterns to lend a little 'oomph'.
The Indonesian silk batik fabric in the middle and top image came from my Balinese haul last year. The pink Chinese silk brocade was bought in Patan, Nepal. There's a sliver of acid-hued Rajasthani sari fabric in there too and the dip dyed wool mix and silk fabrics were done by yours truly.... I used a cut starfruit to print the silver stars on the turquoise and brown dyed silk.
