Hand woven scarf in delicate merino wool with fringed edges. The yarn is hand dyed creating a unique colour palette before being incorporated into the weaving pattern for the loom.
Specialising in hand woven textiles, Doreen Gittens is one of the original tenants of the OXO Tower artists' studios that opened on the south bank of the Thames in 1997.Utliising high quality natural fibres she transforms them into intricate woven patterns which are then brought to life using her traditional wooden loom. The name Archipelago Textiles came from her time spent living on islands from Jamaica and Grenada to the UK where she received her Masters degree at the Glasgow School of Art.
