What is raw silk? Glad you asked - Raw silk is silk that has not been stripped of sericin. Silk emitted by the silkworm consists mainly of two proteins, sericin, and fibroin; fibroin being the structural center of the silk (aka - fine silk), and sericin being the gum coating the fibers and allowing them to stick to each other, and also making the fiber efficient at trapping and holding heat. As a result of having the sericin left on, raw silk is somewhat heavier in texture.
About the brand: Argaman&Defiance paints and prints intricate patterns with water-based inks. A&D naturally dyes the scarves with pigments found in tree bark roots and leaves.
From stitch to surface design, Argaman&Defiance is creating every piece by hand.
