Actual size: 70“x18” (170cm x 46cm)
This silk Ikat scarf was hand dyed and hand woven in Fergana Valley of Uzbekistan using a centuries old technique of ikat weaving. The technique requires precision in tying and wrapping silk threads before dying in order to create a desired pattern. Number of times threads will be tied and wrapped depends on the complexity of ikat pattern and number of colors involved in the design.
Care instructions: dry clean only.
