Which scarf to choose. About the technique in our workshop
When you decide to buy a batik silk scarf, you wonder about the texture of the pattern and the color scheme. If you can easily decide on color preferences without much knowledge, then you need to read a little more information about the texture of the pattern. The batik technique is responsible for the texture of the pattern. Each technique varies in degree of difficulty and the resulting effect on a silk scarf. Our master Elena works in two techniques: "Cold batik" and "Arashi Shibori".
Unlike hot batik, where wax is used, special contours and reserves are used in the cold batik technique. The technician is relieved of the need to heat the substances, etch out the wax, and reapply it. Replacing hot wax with a special reserve greatly simplifies the process of creating a product, facilitates painting, saves time and makes the cost of manual work cheaper for the client with the same visual effect.
In our workshop you can see cold batik scarves already created for our clients.
Master Elena also creates items using the Japanese Arashi Shibori technique. From the Japanese verb "siboru" - twist, squeeze. When stained, the end result often remains a mystery until the last moment, and you can get a pattern that resembles an ornament rather than a clearly defined form as in painting. Scarves in this technique are created even faster than in the Cold Batik technique, which is reflected in the price in a way that is pleasant for our client.
