Embroidered Silk Bandana | Chebula
19 x 20 inches +/-
Chainstich Embroidery in collaboration with Die Trying of Austin, Texas.
“Each DieTrying TX piece is created using the same hand-operated vintage chain stitch machines that were used to create traditional western wear. While most embroidery today is computerized and mass-produced, the work done on these vintage machines is hand done and made one piece at a time.”
Paisley-Danna is screen printed by hand with a pattern inspired by historic Russian and Indian embroidered textiles lending more intricate details to the classic bandana paisley. Naturally dyed with indigo and harda tree wood (terminalia chebula), which is also used in skincare and wellness products.
Sometimes referred to as “raw-silk”, silk noil yarns are spun from shorter fibers leftover from the spinning and manufacture of other silk fabrics. Silk bandanas make a great travel companion, keeping you comfortable in both hot and cold climates. Silk noil has a varied, nubby texture and matte surface that somewhat resembles a handwoven cotton. The unique texture can be best described as 'cozy'. They also work great tied up in your hair, as the nubby silk stays put and doesn't slip. The more you wear your bandana, the softer it will become.
