Elegant, versatile and distinctive, this large, rectangular silk wrap looks great on your head, over your shoulders, worn as a skirt or overskirt, cape, or sarong, and more.
Along with most DBD scarves and wraps in this collection, the image's asymmetry is also your secret weapon--depending on how you fold it, you might unfold a variety of monochromatic looks from dark to light and from simple in pattern to more complex.
THE STORY Named Thrust for its dynamic composition and astrophysical reference, 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 heart of this image is the juxtaposition between its strong composition and tonal subtleties, which also makes it a versatile piece to wear on its own and also for layering.
The orbs on the image are raindrops that were falling as Deborah 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.
This piece has a large, faint abstract gray first edition DBD logo in the lower right hand corner.
MATERIAL OPTIONS 12 MM CREPE DE CHINE: slightly heavier and translucent with beautiful drape, depth, and subtle shine. Great year round.
COLOR ANDESITE MONOCHROME: a subtle, sparkly palette of blacks, grays, and whites.
SIZES STANDARD (41" x 60”)
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.
Hand wash or spot clean with gentle soap, shampoo, or hand soap (we like SDH 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 as they (like people) can be vulnerable in that state.
AVAILABILITY AND SHIPPING
This item is currently on pre-order, with a delivery of a few pieces scheduled for the second week of May. After that, out-of-stock/pre-order items can be expected between 2.5-4 weeks, depending on the details, and earlier if possible. That does occasionally happen.
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.
