Japanese cotton lawn is layered with locally gathered botanicals, rolled, tied and steamed gently for hours to slowly infuse the fibres with the natural pigments, leaving unique, one of a kind imprints. The fabric is then carefully trimmed and hand sewn in my Sydney home studio. This scarf is 100% cotton, making it lightweight, breathable and versatile - summer scarf, headwrap, obi belt or even table runner, the styling possibilities are endless.
Only non-toxic metal salts and natural pigments are used in my dyeing process, so the end product is not only kinder to the environment but also safer and gentler on your skin. Each leaf and petal I use is also sourced conscientiously - I grow what I can in my are either grown in my home garden, gather mindfully in Sydney suburbs or collect kitchen and floral waste from local businesses.
Foraged Mix - foraged and reclaimed foliage, including oak, liquidambar, raspberry, Japanese maple & eucalyptus all gathered within NSW 2011.
Indigo/Foraged - natural indigo and foraged foliage including oak, liquidambar & Japanese maple gathered within NSW 2011.
