Reclaimed silk squares are sprinkled with botanicals, rolled, tied and steamed gently for hours to slowly infuse the silk with the natural pigments. The dyed silks are then carefully trimmed and the edges rolled and sewn to neaten. Special scarf, bandana, furoshiki bento bag or sustainable gift wrap - the possibilities are endless.
Dyed with: Euc Mix - foraged and reclaimed eucalyptus & Japanese maple.
Approx. 50 x 50cm
Each item is handmade and one of a kind, so your scarf will be entirely unique and different from the one pictured. Variations in colour and details are all part of what makes your item special and should be embraced.
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.
