Flower of the Flock

The lightweight fabric of Hemangini Singh's pretty scarf will flutter in the summer breeze, giving a subtle impression of lilac-colored birds in flight. Its semi-abstract design, created by the "double ikat" technique, requires intensive, skilled labor to produce: The tie dyeing on both the warp and weft ikat threads must coincide to create the bird motifs. Because the pattern is woven, not printed, it's the same on both sides. The loosely woven, soft cotton fabric has just enough body to give it some definition as it drapes. We're not sure if it's strong enough to keep the flock from flying home, wherever that is. You'll have to let us know—especially if they take you with them. Designed in New York. Handmade in India.
