The process begins with silk cloth made from naturally harvested silk in the farming village of Binh Minh, Vietnam. Working communally, each family within the village assumes a particular task in the silk production process. The process begins with one family raising the silk worms organically on a diet of Mulberry leaves.
A separate family harvests the cocoons and spins the yarn while another family weaves the yarn into fabric on antique looms.
Finally the fabric is hand dyed using Shibori techniques and a complex blend of watercolors to create unique one-of-a-kind patterns. Twisting and braiding finishes the process, resulting in the subtle crinkle texture that has become a signature characteristic of the Watercolor Scarves.
