Full length skirt with a side button closure and side seam pockets. This skirt is made from our beautiful hand woven strip cloth, made especially for the 100% Silk label, weighted without feeling hot and heavy. Triangle panels at the waist are adorned with hand cast brass amulets. Gathered for a full shape, and tied cotton fringe at the hem. An elegant, durable piece that walks the line between past and future.
The Amulet collection is a collaboration between 100% SILK and jeweller Daniel Mawuli Quist. Lost-wax brass casting was developed by the Asante people in Ghana to make objects for gold transactions, such as weights and canisters. Like their forefathers, Ghana’s brass casters begin the process of making metal articles by sculpting in beeswax. The wax form is painted with a paste of fine charcoal and water and covered in a mold of coarse palm fibers and clay. Finally, the wax is poured out and replaced by molten brass. The finished brass piece is polished with palm nut fibers and sand over several days.
