Block Print Scarf

DESCRIPTION

The Block Print scarf features an abstract handmade pattern. The making of this design involved a square block and running a pattern marker over it to transfix the surface of the fabric. The block was printed four times, with no ink between each print. This technique was used to create a one-of-a-kind piece of art, that has its own narrative of lines and intensity.
