Peony & indigo silk scarf - blues and gold
Ethically sourced silk scarf, hand dyed using seasonal Peony and Hellebore leaves, then over dyed with indigo creating little windows into the colour and patterns below. One of a kind for summer and the perfect gift for Christmas.
My Peony leaves are sourced from a local florist. Custom demands that the leaves are stripped from the flower stem, and usually will go to compost.
The art of eco printing is a contemporary process of bundling fabrics up with plant matter, sustainable and from completely natural resources.
Habotai is a woven lightweight silk with a smooth sheen and soft drape, a perfect weight for spring and summer but giving enough warmth to be versatile to wear in winter too. Plant dyes leave lustrous iridescent quality on this natural fabric that shimmers in the light.
Scarf measures 179 cm x 35 cm. Silk weight 8 momme
