Lotus silk scarf Bagan

£260.30

Naturally dyed lotus silk scarf from Myanmar.

Myanmar is the only country in the world where lotus silk is being produced.

Women from the water villages on and around Lake Inle are highly skilled when it comes to spinning silk-like threads from the golden fibre that can be found inside the stem of a lotus flower. A time consuming process.

The women spin the threads, and then dye the fibre with dyestuff they made from natural ingredients.

Lotus silk is traditionally being used for the robes of important Buddhist monks.

Each scarf and each robe has been handcrafted with total dedication. Unique piece by unique piece.
