Ima’s scarves have been printed with a digital textile printer onto habotai silk. Habotai silk is the result of thousand of years of silkworm cultivation and it is considered for its white and smooth fibre the most valuable of the silks.

Ima recommends hand washing the scarves in lukewarm water, adding some drops of hair shampoo or mild soap. Avoid soaking the silk and roll the scarf in a towel to extract the water before placing it to dry, keeping it away from direct sunshine.
