Silk scarf by Káte

160 x 35 cm

 

This one-of-a-kind, hand-painted 100% Greek silk scarf is made with care by Káte in Athens, using the Ebru art technique.

 

Ebru is a traditional form of painting, known in the East for centuries. The design is made on the surface of the water and then captured on the fabric. Due to the nature of the procedure, each piece is unique, as there is no way to copy a design. The technique results in an airy, light, organic feeling.

  • Katerina Momitsa lives and works in Athens. Her work is presented under the brand name Káte and is related to the ebru and marbling techniques.

    Ebru is a traditional form of painting, well known in Anatolia for centuries. The design is created on the water and then captured on paper. The origin of the word is Persian and means "figure like a cloud".

    Her first contact and studies with ebru were in Istanbul. Since then she has participated in several workshops of many ebru masters. She has also taken part in various exhibitions.
