Our SKYLINE Lime cotton gauze scarf was naturally-dyed with cockspur thorn and indigofera tinctoria -- both are Indonesia's "old world dyes".
The fabric texture is wonderfully adaptable. It's airy to wear under the sun, yet also warm enough for cooler season. The simple pattern with its captivating color combination of yellow and green simply gives you an elegant touch of limelight.
No dangerous chemicals were involved in our natural dyeing process.

EMBRACE THE SLOW PROCESS: IMMERSION DYEING
Immersion dye is a method of coloring fibers by immersing/soaking/dipping the whole or a part of the fibers into a dye bath for certain amount of time. We use tannin-rich plants to make the colors long-lasting while being mindful that color of the plant is often different to the color it releases as dye. The magic of nature plays the most vital role in the process, which makes the result of each creation a one-of-a-kind beauty and cannot be replicated.
