Indigo dyed Crepe de Chine Silk Scarf Eco-printed with Chestnut & Black Walnut Leaves

$89.95

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:  This scarf is printed with Black Walnut, Peony, Smokebush & Chestnut leaves.  I over-dyed this silk scarf with all natural Indigo dye.

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 in size.

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.
