Each of the scarves is named after the weaver who made the scarf and we're hoping to have these up on Etsy by next week! Let me know if there are any colours, patterns, etc that you really like and think would make good designs for sewing fabric!! A super big thank you to my friend, Imola, who volunteered to model in some of the photos and who also acted as photographer in the other photos!
The 'Mina' Scarf:
This is probably one of my favourite scarves. It's more loosely woven than our other scarves. It's make from all handwoven cotton with burgundy and gold colours (and where they cross it becomes a bit more of a raspberry colour). It sort of reminds me of Griffindor colours.
You can see how the light comes through the weave in the scarf. So pretty!
The 'Sohila' Scarf
What I love most about the Sohila scarf is the colour combination. It's a bit of a salmon and light teal combination and check out how the two colours get interwoven at the bottom of the scarf so that they look perfectly mixed:
The 'Sobani' Silk Scarf:
Sobani is one of the first ethical 'Eri' silk scarves we'll be selling. It's so soft and lovely. The ethical silk comes from the 'Eri' silkworm that is native to the State of Assam, India. The silkworm is not killed in the process of making the silk and the moths leave the cocoon when it is ready to be spun. It feeds on local Castor plants. The silk is not dyed at all--so this is it's natural colour.
You can see that the Sohila scarf is also loosely woven varying the natural shades of the Eri silk into a criss-cross pattern. We've also got our labels on these scarves. The name 'WE' will be applied to the scarves and later to come, fabrics. It's stands for 'women's empowerment' but also for all of us--together, 'WE' are creating beautiful things and supporting each other.
The 'Romila' Scarf
The Romila scarf is another one of my favourites. I simply love the desert colours and the beautiful striped edges. Again, teal is making an appearance (oh, how I love it so!)
The 'Anila' Scarf
Last up in this sneak peek is the Anila scarf. It's the perfect blend of burgundy and purple colours. If you look really close, you can see the alternating pinstripe effect:
What do you think? Don't you love the colours? Which one is your favourite? Do you think any of these would be nice for sewing fabrics? What colours do you want to see in sewing fabrics? Or scarves?
