This hand dyed silk tie has been dyed using the Japanese Arashi Shibori technique giving diagonal lines. The fabric has been bound and pleated, then dyed in blue to create this distinctive patterning of blue with softer turquoise blue stripes.
The tie is meticulously hand stitched and is finished with a Skye Silks label.
Your tie will be delivered beautifully packaged in a Skye Silks gift box.
Arashi Shibori is the Japanese art of pleating and dyeing fabric. The silk is first dyed in the base colours, ironed dry and then folded and bound around a pole or tube. The bound silk is pushed up the pole to create pleats and then overdyed with contrasting dye colours. The silk is steamed on the pole to set the dyes and ironed dry before being hand sewn into a tie.
