Artsy Cochineal Crepe de Chine Silk Scarf Eco-Printed with Sumac & Eucalyptus

$112.95

Crepe de Chine Silk Scarf Eco-printed with lovely large Sumac & Eucalytpus leaves.  Dyed with all natural Cochineal to bring out the subtle pinks

This is a heavier silk textile – 16.5 mm. By stone (sand) washing this heavier weight of Crepe de Chine, one gets a matte silk with a very soft, luxurious drape and a buttery suede feel. You won’t want to ever remove them from your neck! This is the one that is perfect for the more sophisticated man or woman in your life.  One of a kind and original.

How is it made? Eco-printing:
Each beautiful silk scarf is made by hand, with great love and care, using a method called eco-printing. I hand-craft and hand-dye natural silks, with nature’s colors—found flower petals and leaves, vegetables, spices, and natural dyes. Eco-printing is done by placing the dye materials on the silk by hand then bundle dyeing, and each one takes a minimum of 5 hours, across two days, to complete.

Botanicals used: Sumac & Eucalyptus Leaves Eco-Printed on Crepe de Chine Silk Scarf dyed with All Natural Cochineal.

Size: 14 x 72 Inches.

Special Note:  This scarf is one of a kind. The printing process is somewhat unpredictable and always a surprise to unwrap. There are many varied aspects to my scarves and they are somewhat difficult to photograph. Color variations in botanical dyeing is completely normal and are what is so intriguing about the Japanese term “wabi sabi” beauty of plant dyed textiles.

Care instructions: Hand wash in warm water with mild soap and hang to dry. Iron on the lowest setting (silk setting). Do not dry clean. Dry and store in the shade to preserve the natural dyes.
