Elegantly Smooth Charmeuse Silk Scarf Eco-Printed with Sumac & Peonies

$137.95

Charmeuse is the Queen of silks! A muted crepe on the back side and shimmery lustrous satin on the top side. It is heavier and more substantial than plain Satin or Crepe de Chine, has a firm, soft, supple hand and a luxuriously heavy drape.  This fabric traditionally considered to be the most luxurious of the silks. This scarf has a hand rolled hems with 100% silk thread.  One of a kind and original.

Botanicals used:  Eco-printed with Sumac, Peony & Smokebush (Cotinus) Leaves

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.

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.

Tehya’s elegant silk scarf creations have been printed with the natural pigments of real plants and flowers, harvested in Boulder, Colorado.

 I gather plants and flowers from nature with love here in Boulder, Colorado. Each leaf and flower is then placed on an exotic silk, bundled and printed by means of a steaming method. All my creations are made with completely sustainable natural dyes. Each silk textile I design represents an artistic labor of love.
