Pashmina of Wool & Silk printed with Eucalyptus and Dyed with Lac
Pashmina of Wool and Silk. Printed with Eucalyptus leaves and all natural Cochineal dye. Perfect Pashina for the winter here in Boulder, Colorado! 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: Eucalyptus Eco-Printed on a Wood & Silk blend Pashmina.
Size: 29 x 79 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 cool water with mild soap and hang to dry. Iron on the lowest setting (wool setting). Do not dry clean. Dry and store in the shade to preserve the natural dyes.
