Scarf, silk handmade khit technique
2013-03-02 - Extraordinary silk scarf, handwoven in the traditional khit style. The khit technique is a special subsection of the weaving culture in Southeast Asia. The unique khit style can be recognised by the combination of perfect geometrical patterns in contrasting colours. The geometry is the same on both sides of the scarf and sometimes, depending on the light, seems to float on top of the silk.
This very special silk scarf is handcrafted by extremely experienced and talented weavers from the Panmai group, a co-op in the eastern part of Thailand. The silk of the scarf is naturally dyed, its dyestuff derived from the fruit of the mulberry tree.
