Jinja Women’s Group Tie Dyeing Scarves

Each year, our Jinja women’s group gains more tie dyeing skills.  This is their fifth year of making tie-dyed silk scarves and their work is amazing!  It is a specially trained group of 22 of the women who make these scarves.  Some of the team uses tie dyeing techniques on the scarves while others pin the scarves to stretcher frames and hand paint patterns and other designs on the scarves.  Most of the work is done outside and so they have to hope for sunny skies!

We continue to be amazed at their high quality work.  Once each scarf is completed, the ladies add a paper bead tassel to one corner of the scarf. Want to buy a scarf?  Visit the “Shop” area of our web site.  Here are some photos which show the ladies hard at work on a sunny day in July.
