Introducing martha’s latest collection for scarfshop’s second anniversary: AQUEUS, a hand dyed silk/cotton collection, inspired by the residual swirls of dyewater left in the dye bucket, each scarf starts with a carefully selected palette of colors which are allowed to mix with and repel each other directly on the fabric. The result is that while the colors are constant, each scarf is unique.
The COLORBLOCKS collection, large silk/cotton scarves hand dyed in a two color pattern, has been updated for fall 2012 with three new colorways: ochre/white, soot/white & hot coral/soot.
SCARFSHOP continues to offer the RANDOM DYE collection, which is made from the same light as air open weave fabric as the ORIGINAL cotton scarves but with a random dye pattern. Each of these scarves is completely unique and one of a kind. The random pattern develops over several weeks through the process of dyeing the solid scarves.
