'Tanabata' ombre silk scarf - black nocturne

'Tanabata' ombre silk scarf - black nocturne

by Keiko Kuroishi



'Tanabata' is Keiko's signature scarf. First created in the late 90's, it has proven to have an enduring appeal, selling in design shops and museums around the world.

Despite it's exceptional lightness, and foundation as a simple sheet of silk, the deceptively simple 'mesh' cut allows the fabric to drape in an enchanting manner, creating a 3D effect that adds both visual appeal and practicality - allowing the scarf to be tied and worn in all manner of ways. You can watch Keiko herself demonstrate this on Youtube.
