Pure Sheep Wool Thigma Skarak, Chestnut Scarves

₹6,539.00Price

Handmade, warm sheep wool mufflers that look cool and chic, rolled up or slung down. Hand stitched and hand dyed in the traditional tir-resist-dye thigma technique, the thigma motifs are unique to the region of Ladakh in Kashmir. Rare to find, as the tradition of hand making these thigma woolen fabrics is dying. All made in natural dyes, each piece is ecologically aligned and carbon neutral. Step out, let style and substance converge.

Thigma, the local term for resist-dyeing on woollen cloth is a derivative of the word thitoo. Practised largely in the Nubra valley region, this technique involves pinching parts of the cloth and tightly binding them with thread. The cloth is then dyed in natural colors made of apple bark and onion peels (for light browns), soot (for light grey), a root known as chutza (for yellow) and yet another root called chzot (for pink). When the ties are finally removed, they reveal a pattern created by the folds of the cloth called Thigma.
