Description

This scarf is 100% Habutai Silk.

All of my scarfs are naturally dyed in my home studio using various different leaves such as: eucalyptus, fern, maple, birch,  oak, seaweeds and many others, foraged locally from the Tasmanian bush and my garden.  The fresh leaves are contact printed onto the scarf with a gentle steaming process. Once the leaves are used I can’t use them again, and the leaves go back to earth in my compost. That’s why all of the scarves are one of a kind. No nasty chemicals, just the power and hidden beauty of the leaves.

 

Dimensions:

About 35cm by 170cm

 

How do you care for it?

I recommend hand washing, using a mild (preferably eco-friendly) detergent in cold water. Do not tumble dry. Iron, on silk settings. On the first few washes the scarf may release little dye. This is normal. Avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight, e.g. leaving it on the washing line for a few days.
