Wide-Striped Wild Silk Shawl
Plain weave gauze wrap handwoven from naturally dyed and handspun silk. This shawl is woven in the traditional village pattern of alternating warp stripes of deep rust, medium beige, and dark taupe set apart from one another by narrow natural-colored borders. The warp threads are set about 11 ends per inch, and the weft woven at 15 picks per inch. It is light weight with excellent drape and can be worn as a shawl or scarf.
Clementine created this unique, exquisite silk wrap. She is a member of the women spinners and weavers of Federation Sahalandy. All fiber is handspun from silk cocoons that feed on the leaves of the Tapia tree. Sahalandy launched in 2006 and is made up of seven weaving cooperatives located throughout the surrounding communities of Fandriana, in the mountain area of Sahdrandahy, Madagascar.
