A joyful swirl of blues, turquoises and greens – sparkling clear water floating downstream. A dance of leaves adorning it. Light, uplifting, invigorating. Shimmering light. Soft and pretty.
This beautiful little silk shawl is a delight to wear. Painted in layers to create a beautiful patterning. The first layer was painted on, blending and swirling the greens and blues together to create a lovely watery effect. Next the batik layer – dancing leaf motifs in soya wax. And then finally dye applied to the leaves to let them float on top of the silk.
The fabric was then rolled up and steamed for 3 hours to ensure the dyes bonded with the silk for light and wash fastness. After thorough washing to remove wax residues and ironing, it was ready for its photoshoot.
The silk is habotai 8mm and measures approx. 35cm x 180cm (14″ x 78″) and has prerolled hems.
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.
Your Silk & Art silk scarf comes to you beautifully gift packaged in luscious tissue paper complete with a gorgeous fuchsia satin ribbon.
