Silk shawl handwoven in loom
This silk shawl is a light, eye-catching and combinable shawl. Fully adaptable and very comfortable to wear. Its touch is very soft, flexible and slightly denser than industrial silk.
Combined with different fashion styles from the most informal to the most sophisticated, it adapts to your own style, providing a note of differentiation, due to its uniqueness and the incomparable and pearly shine of silk. Very versatile and combinable, you can wear it with any garment, dresses, shirts, coats ... As a shawl at any time of the year or as a scarf attached to the neck in winter, it is light, although it maintains the heat of your body if you wear it close to the skin, for its thermo-regulatory properties.
We have twisted and knotted the fringes to always keep them in order and achieve a more elegant look.
For lovers of shawls, comfortable, elegant, sophisticated and timeless. And those who are passionate about black and multicolored. Suitable for people with allergy or skin sensitivity problems.
We have woven this shawl by hand on our looms, with a simple fabric that provides flexibility, drape and softness, looking for a point of attention with the two colorful borders.
Silk is a sophisticated fiber, soft, strong, durable, with a satin sheen that makes it totally unmistakable. It is breathable and has thermo-regulatory properties that make it very suitable for keeping the skin warm, especially in the neck area, being its use very versatile as it is worn. It is a noble fiber of recognized quality. Our silk has a slightly thicker yarn and this makes it cool or warm, depending on how you wear it and that it has a different touch from the industrial one.
Fibers: 100% silk.
Measurements: 54 cm x 206 cm. (Fringes included).
Warp / weft color: Black base, woven in black with border in various colors.
Warmth: Low as a shawl. Medium / high as a scarf.
Finishes: In the first and last thread, we have hand sewn a hem stitch so that the fabric does not come apart. Hand tucked weft thread splices at the selvages. Twisted and knotted fringes. Washed and ironed. All to give it more quality and durability.

Laying: wrap a towel around the clothesline holding it with two clips and hang the piece vertically so that it is not marked and, if necessary, facilitates ironing.
Ironing: no special care is taken, in general the temperature indicated by your iron for linen and cotton. With linen, you can spray the fabric with water to make ironing easier.
Reusable box: We send you this shawl in its reusable brown and orange cardboard box, so you can store it and keep it impeccable, always ready to use.
COMMON FEATURES IN OUR SUSTAINABLE LUXURY FABRICS.
This piece is unique, designed and handwoven by us on a wooden loom, moved by our hands and feet, strand by strand handwoven with the best quality natural fiber, the best to wear in contact with your skin and taking care of all aspects, so that you have a piece, timeless, durable and of great quality.
All its finishes are made by hand. There are no knots in the warp (vertical threads) or weft (horizontal threads), the splices are inserted by hand into the selvages with a needle.
We wash it by hand with natural soap, to verify the quality of the fiber, the dyeing and its final measurement, all the pieces handwoven on the artisanal loom shrink in their first wash because the fibers reposition themselves, then they do not shrink any more. And to finish we iron it by hand with steam to give it a better presentation and you can appreciate all its qualities.
