From Japan: AMATERASU brings Shibori, the ancient tradition of silk scarf making, back to life!

Like bags and shoes there can never be too many silk scarves in a Green Pebbles Girl's wardrobe!  Especially when the scarves come all the way from the land of Silk: Japan.

 

Amaterasu's stunning scarves are made according to ancient japanese principles, techniques and aesthetiques and are the creation of Creative Director Makiko Niimura who previously worked in the entertainment industry as a movie producer. 

 

The scarves are the result of the intense study of Japanese craftsmanship combined with the Japanese sense of beauty translated for a more universal appeal.

 

 

The Amaterasu Silk scarves are handmade and dyed in Kyoto, Japan by artisans using the Shibori technique passed down from one generation to the next!

 

The Shibori technique allows the wearer to experience two different textures at the same time as the lighter colours of these voluminous chiffon-like scarves will feel softer and look shinier than the darker portions.

 

 
The scarves can be worn individually or they can be wrapped together to form a wonderful chromatic experience.
 

 

You can purchase the Amaterasu' scarves directly from ASOS Marketplace
