Light and Lovely Habotai Scarf Eco-printed with Black Walnut Leaves
Habotai (from the Japanese habutae (羽二重), literally “feather-two-layer”, is one of the lightest weaves of silk fabric.
Botanicals used: This beautiful scarf is printed with Black Walnut, Peony & Smokebush (Cotinus) leaves and over-dyed with all natural Indigo, creating a very dark blue.
Size: 10 x 57 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.
