Description

This Purple Pink Silk Shawl Scarf has been hand made using what is known as a Mudmee Design technique.The scarf itself is a large shawl and ideal for any occassion. The amount of work that has gone into this shawl makes it a unique item.

Mudmee is regarded as the “Queen of Thai Silk” because of its intricate patterns. In Thai historical times it was the cloth reserved for royalty and the nobility. Mudmee patterns take an extraordinary amount of time to create. Mudmee silk is made by tying and dyeing the silk yarn into a design repeatedly so that the weaver ends up with silk yarn that looks like a multicolored bar code. The weft or horizontal yarn which has been tied and dyed creates the pattern. The pattern is the same on both sides of the silk.

Silk is lustrous and can absorb an amazing 30% of its dry weight in moisture, giving it similar properties to wool. This makes it a comfortable year-round fibre to wear. It has warmth without weight. It breathes so it can be used as a summer fibre, but makes for light weight insulation in the cold.
