This work is made using a technique called Arashi Shibori - which involves wrapping the silk on a pipe and compressing it. There are many stages in the making process, over several days, and each piece is unique in its colouration. It is designed to wear lightly tied, to dress up a simple outfit - which it will immediately make glamorous and exotic. The four layers of silk make it very warm, yet extremely light and feminine. It needs to be stored in its box when not being worn; kept dry at all times, and specialist dry-cleaned.
