The Moth series scarves share the same illustration, but because of the dyeing process, every scarf is one of a kind. Each scarf goes through a variety of steps, including; scouring, mordanting, bundling, waiting, dyeing, washing, printing, steaming, washing, ironing, and hand hemming, with a few more steps in-between.
