Split Paisley Kiriko Scarf


This indigo patchwork scarf by local retailer, Kiriko, is inspired by Japanese fabrics and the traditional techniques used to make them. Each scarf is made using kase-zome fabric. This hand-made cloth is produced in Hiroshima, Japan using traditional methods.

To achieve a rich, vibrant color throughout, the fabric’s threads are dyed before weaving. Craftspeople submerge the treads in dye tanks by hand, before laying them to dry naturally in the sun. This process is repeated until the desired color is reached.

The machines used to weave the cloth are also unique. Each of the century-old machines is controlled manually. The fabric’s patterns and designs are created by skilled craftsman who have devoted their lives to mastering this kase-zome weaving technique.
