ORUNMILA PATTERN TIE

$150.00

Raw douppioni silk treated in "Adire" - an old and rare hand dyeing process developed by the Yorubas in the Southwest region of Nigeria. Prior to dyeing, the artist hand paints patterns using a cassava starch paste that acts as the resist dye. Our focus was to transform an old world technique into a new form of design. Due to the nature of the process, each product varies in uniqueness and individuality, giving them a one of kind feel.
