This approximately 41" square silk scarf looks great on your head, as a headband, tucked inside a blazer, as a shawl, tied around your hips, and more. The image's asymmetry is also your secret weapon--depending on how you fold it (the trick lies in which point of the triangle you make your apex), you might unfold a variety of monochromatic looks from dark to light and from simple in pattern to more complex.
THE STORY Named Spica for one of the best known stars in our sky and one of Deborah's favorites, the subject of this image is actually an original 1930's, WPA-era turbine on display at the Bonneville Dam in the Columbia River Gorge in western Oregon. The orbs on the image are raindrops that were falling as she photographed. Deborah has taught a form of cosmology, and the play of structure and movement, solid metals and weather, shine and shadow reminded her of the great play of star evolution in our skies.
Spica has either no logo on the scarf or a very small, faint DBD logo along one edge.
MATERIAL OPTIONS SILK GEORGETTE: lightweight, matte, filmy, and semi-transparent. Romantic and dramatic. Brilliant in warmer weather and a great layering piece year round.
12 MM CREPE DE CHINE: slightly heavier and translucent with beautiful drape, depth, and subtle shine. Great year round.
COLORS ANDESITE MONOCHROME: a subtle, sparkly palette of blacks, grays, and whites.
INDIGO MONOCHROME: just as graduated but slightly bluer and cooler, moving from deep, saturated indigo gray to pale blue gray with a touch of lavender and white.
CRAFTSMANSHIP 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.
CARE INSTRUCTIONS Hand wash or spot clean only, using a gentle soap (we like SBH 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) in this condition they tend to be vulnerable.
AVAILABILITY AND SHIPPING Options in stock are shipped immediately. Out of stock/pre-order options are printed to order and currently ship within 2.5 to 4 weeks depending on the details.
Each scarf comes in a black photographic proof box to protect it from dust and light. The box also contains a small, printed paper replica of the piece with Deborah's signature, date, and edition number on the back.
