Handmade in Jaipur, Rajasthan, India the Lorcan over-sized scarf is a unique fashion statement and will be a laid-back transitional wardrobe favourite. No two are the same. The artisan uses the Nui shibori stitched technique where a simple running stitch is used on the cotton and then pulled tight to gather the cloth. The thread needs to be pulled really tight to create the correct design and a wooden dowlÂ often used to pull it tight enough. Each thread is secured with a knot and the cotton is then dyed by hand. This technique gives a greater variety of pattern and greater controlÂ over the outcome but is more time consuming than simple shibori. So each piece is a labour of love and artisanal skill, ready to be enjoyed by you on holiday or at home.
