Elegant, versatile and distinctive, this large, rectangular silk wrap rules as a headscarf, hood, shawl, sarong, skirt or overskirt, and more. Its deep saturated color plus wand border also abstracts and pays homage the look of the traditional Japanese kimono, while also allowing it to be worn in many ways and contexts: romantic, dramatic, contemporary, and more.
Violet Rain was inspired by a specific spot in a very powerful, protected waterfall and the moment in time in which the spray from cascade was bouncing back from the earth to the sky after impact from a drop of over 200 feet. Like many astronomical x-ray telescope images, it is also study of a history of energy.
Violet Rain has a faint lavender abstract first edition DBD logo in the lower right hand corner as in the first, second, third and last (fine arts image) slide.
12 MM CREPE DE CHINE: slightly translucent with beautiful drape, depth, faintly pebbled surface, and subtle shine. Slightly cool to the touch. Great year round.
VIOLET ANDESITE MONOCHROME: in crêpe de chine a motor dramatic and elegant graduated palette of dark saturated violet, mauve, creams and white. In silk georgette, a more sparkling and soft graduated palette of violet, lilac, mauve, lavender, and cream.
STANDARD (41" x 60”)
LONG (41" x 75")
NOTE: Long wraps give women with broader ribs and/or fuller bust lines (36/38 and up) the option of tying their wrap as a sarong--and gives anyone more tying options.
All DBD silk scarves and wraps are individually artisan printed on a photographic printer and hand-hemmed in the USA. Creatively conceived and executed in the mists of Western Oregon and produced in the California wildfire zone, they bear not only beauty and versatility but also a message of regeneration. Each one is unique and slight individual variations are normal.
Hand wash or spot clean only with gentle soap (we like S.D.H Fine Fabric Wash). These pieces also appreciate having a couple of tablespoons of sea salt added to the rinse water. Iron or steam as desired. Please do not rub fibers when wet, because (like people) they tend to be vulnerable in this condition.
