Shibori Influenced Scarves

I have hardly done anything at all over my holidays – except lie on the couch and watch Jane The Virgin and Upper Middle Bogan (highly recommend both these fine productions) – and have nanna naps in the afternoons.

But today I got off my bed-sorey butt and tried Japanese tie-dyeing. I am trying to create a new range of scarves and, although I dyed on to cotton voile today, my plan is to use silk in the future with a selection of both red and indigo designs. What do you think? Beautiful!

New Etsy Shop: Scarves By Andie

002

At last! A proper online Etsy shop space. Please come visit Scarves By Andie. I will be working on developing the space as I get time leading up to Christmas, so please be patient. I also want to thank Mary at Post Industrial Design for allowing me to use her photos of my scarves on the site.

All my scarves are handmade in Melbourne in my dining room at home. I have a particular OCD tendency when it comes to finish, so expect near perfection! My scarves are light weight and could be the perfect gift for somone special, who is far away – I’m thinking postage here…

To be chosen to be made into an Andie scarf, the fabric needs to tick a few boxes. It has to be lightweight, soft and flowing and there needs to be either an historical or cultural reference point Рsomething only Andie can determine!

Andie is influenced by fashion eras of the 20th Century, Japanese patterns and anything modern and fresh. Think Art Deco, the 1960’s through to the 1980’s and think Scandinavian Modern.

Hope you love the new shop. Thanks for taking a look.
