Black Eyelet Open Weave Wrap
The SAHALANDY Eyelet Open Weave Wrap is the perfect accent to your wardrobe. Handmade with raw silk in Madagascar by members of the cooperative. The open weave design is one of the community’s traditional designs and creates a stunning statement of elegance.
The process for making this wrap begins with collecting the wild silk cocoons, which are cleaned and boiled to release the silk bundles. The women spin this raw silk into thread using a traditional drop spindle, and dye them with the rich colors of natural dyes. Once the silk thread is dyed, the women weave the wrap on a floor loom, watching it take shape over time. A single wrap takes up to a month to produce and passes through the hands of ten artists during its creation.
Slight imperfections and color variations are inherent in this handwoven piece and add to its charm.
Measures approximately 30 inches by 75 inches.
