Shimmering Hand-Dyed Silk Stole
Yusai of Kyoto are creating a limited series of absolutely gorgeous, one-off, luxury silk stoles for day and evening, perfect to accompany any outfit. Wrap yourself up in style with luxurious silk and add stunning colors to your wardrobe. Silk is a wonderful fiber that captures every subtlety of light, thus giving it an appearance of many colors within one. Drape yourself in the luxury of a Yusai stole for a glamorous event, or to just add exquisite style to a jacket, T-shirt and a pair of jeans.
Accessories are more than a luxurious indulgence; a stole can liven up a tired outfit found in the back of the wardrobe and change the whole atmosphere of an ensemble. It can also be the finishing touch, or a comfort wrap on a cool evening – not as formal as a coat or jacket, but still glamorous enough to look elegant. A stunning accessory to complete a gorgeous outfit, each Yusai stole is a creation of real beauty. Choose a color and design from the samples and Yusai will carefully hand-dye a similar stole especially for you.
Yusai: The secret's in the water!
The evolution of the delicious, delicate flavors of Kyoto cuisine are largely attributable to the softness of the local water. Water is also a crucial component of the silk dyeing process. Being so soft, Kyoto water is absolutely perfect for dyeing silk by hand, and creates stunning graduations of deep, rich color. Yusai store their water in unglazed terracotta pots, adding charcoal to assist with purification and powdered sea oyster shells for improved alkalinity. Preserved in this way, water can be stored for a very long time. The addition of these 'impurities' improve the quality of the water for silk dyeing, enabling colorants to mix efficiently so that soft, delicate dyeing of the highest possible quality can be achieved. Yusai's artful way of enhancing Kyoto's water gives each of their stoles an absolutely unique flavor. Indeed each one is an individually created piece with no two being exactly the same.
A lightweight, hand-dyed stole can make a delightful present for someone special. Mark your fourth or twelfth wedding anniversary by giving your partner a useful, absolutely unique, timeless silk accessory that will always be treasured. (Fourth traditional US, twelfth traditional US / UK).
