I just couldn’t resist. Being a cat lover and owner I had to pay a tribute to my gorgeous cat on silk. I got sudden inspiration and created this delightful silky piece with a trail of cheeky kitten paw prints from top to bottom.
This was painted in batik style with the undercoat a mixture of oranges and golds. The paw print layer was painted on in wax and then the whole scarf was painted over in another layer of golds and coppers.
It was then rolled up and steamed for 3 hours to fix the dyes permanently in the silk and washed carefully afterwards to remove the soya wax residue.
It measures approx. 35cm x 180cm (14″ x 72″) and is made of 100% habotai silk with pre-rolled edges. The dyes are quality French dyes which are truly vibrant.
Please hand wash your silk scarf very gently in warm soapy water using a mild shampoo. Rinse until the water is clear, roll in a towel and hang up to dry. Iron from the reverse with a medium hot iron (please ensure your iron is clean).
