    After finishing the paintings. They are dried and steamed. After steaming dyes become the part of the fiber. And they can be washed. Sorry, I forgot to mention that step (STEAMING) but my video posted above step 1 explains the whole process.

    Thanks for clarifying! The scarf looks beautiful!
