So soft and delicate with an undercoat of pastel pinks and yellows created in shibori technique to create a gentle striped effect. Then overpainted after a batik layer, creating a new abstract block pattern in a mixture of rose quartz and fuchsia.
And golden leaf embellishments adorning the corners.
The silk scarf measures approx. 45cm x 180 (18″ x 72″) and is made of 100% habotai silk with prerolled edges.
I created this silk in several layers using the batik and shibori techniques. Once completed it was rolled up and steamed for 3 hours to permanently fix the dyes in the fabric.
Please give your silk scarf lots of TLC by washing it gently by hand in warm water with a touch of shampoo. Rinse until clear and then roll up in a towel to absorb most of the moisture. Then iron from the reverse with a very clean iron on a medium to hot setting.
