Botanicals Eco-Printed on Crepe de Chine Silk & Dyed in Brazilwood & Cochineal
Crepe de Chine silk scarf is the “Mercedes” of the silks. Crepe de Chine is heavier and more substantial than the Habotai silk, with a soft, more luxurious texture. The crepe finish has a matte finish and has a more subtle sheen. This scarf has a hand rolled hem with 100% silk thread. One of a kind and original.
Botanicals used: Chestnut, Peony, Smokebush (Cotinus), London Plume, & Black Walnut Leaves Eco-Printed on Crepe de Chine Silk dyed with All Natural Brazilwood & Cochineal.
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.
