Devore Scarf with Fringe
At Hana Lima Hand Dyes, we dye our scarves one by one in a full range of beautiful and unique color combinations and patterns.
Our devore scarves start out as two layers of fabric: silk as the background and rayon as the foreground. A design is etched on the rayon layer and the areas outside of the design are removed, leaving a rayon design on the silk background.
When we purchase devore fabric it is white with the design already on the fabric. We add the color with silk and rayon dyes.
Devore Scarf without Fringe
The dyes we use color both the silk background and the rayon design at the same time. We mix both the background color and the design color in a pan of water with a fixative and heat on the stove until the dyes separate and attach to the respective fabrics.
We don't use recipes to produce our colors, preferring to let whatever happens, happen. Many of our most intriguing colors come from adding new colors to an old dye bath. We sell to retail stores and at festivals in the Hawaiian Islands. To inquire about becoming a wholesale account, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
