bejeweled .... diamond patterns on a hand dyed silk scarf

Details

This scarf was made with a shibori technique, which is an ancient art form in Japan using binding, clamping and sewing to form shapes and color. With this method, you affix clay balls to the scarf with rubber bands. Where the rubber bands compress the fabric, it's harder for the dye to penetrate - this gives the white diamond outlines. Then you drip, spray, paint or otherwise add color and put it into a plastic bag to keep it wet while it cures overnight. The next day, you get to see the display - see the last photos for an example. This scarf is mostly a light purple, with a little more blue at the throat and a little bit of yellow at the tips.

This 11"x60" silk scarf was dyed with Procion MX fiber reactive dyes. To make sure that the scarf will be colorfast, it was machine washed twice in hot water with a professional textile detergent. During the final rinse, a special conditioner, Milsoft, was added, which gives the scarf a buttery soft feel.

Care instructions: To clean your scarf, blot with a moistened towel, or, if necessary, hand wash in cold water with a couple drops of gentle detergent like dishwashing liquid. Iron when damp to remove wrinkles.

Re S&H:
Unless you tell me otherwise, this will ship via Priority Mail. If you'd like to save some money by using first class mail instead, tell me so at checkout and I'll refund the difference between Priority and first class +50 cents handling (PayPal will suck up most of it). If you'd like to use local pickup (see "Policies" tab), use the coupon code IBLOCAL at checkout.

Policies

Welcome!
Thank you for visiting Drape Your Nape. This shop is devoted to showcasing the Japanese art of shibori as well as the all-American art of tie dye.

For every sale, 50% of the profits will be donated to Fill This House, a charity dedicated to the welfare of children aging out of the foster care system. See "Additional Policies" for more information.

PAYMENT
Please pay for your purchase within 3 days of sale through PayPal, money orders, personal checks or cash. (Please don't send cash through the mail.) Your check must clear (up to 10 business days) before your order can be sent. If you are arranging for local pickup, cash is also ok.

SHIPPING
Unless you tell me otherwise, I ship by Priority Mail, but here's what you need to know about reducing shipping costs and buying multiple items:

Use first class mail: If you specify this type of delivery at checkout, I will refund the difference between Priority and first class postage plus 50 cents for materials.

Use local pickup: If you specify this option at checkout, you won't have any shipping costs. I live in Hiram, OH but work next to Cleveland Hopkins airport. If you're anywhere in the vicinity, we can work something out. At checkout, use the coupon code IBLOCAL to get the shipping charge removed. If it accidentally goes through without removing the charge, I will refund the excess.

REFUNDS AND EXCHANGES
I want you to love your purchase as much as I enjoyed creating it. You can return any item for a refund (with the exception of underwear, for obvious reasons). Please contact me within 3 weeks of delivery to arrange for return. Upon return of undamaged merchandise, I will refund you the purchase price through PayPal or check (depending on how you paid).

ADDITIONAL INFO and FAQs
I'm really trying to make a go of it on artfire, but haven't made many sales yet. If you'd like to see what people have to say about my work, check out my etsy shop here: http://www.etsy.com/people/drapeyournape/feedback?ref=pr_feedback

For every sale, 50% of the profits will be donated to Fill This House. Every year, 200-300 kids age out of the foster care system just in Cuyahoga County, OH alone. Many of them are left without any family for support and may own just the clothes on their backs. This charitable organization provides these young people with new household items to begin the next phase of their lives. See http://www.fillthishouse.org/ for more information.
