Inspired by contrast of shapes and movements of leaves, I have transformed pure white merino wool with the dusky orange and brown kiss of two kinds of eucalyptus leaves (willow leaf and silver dollar) through eco printing. The result is a white scarf dotted with warm tone silhouettes ideal for pairing with late summer and early fall ensembles.
The purchase of this listing is for one eco printed scarf with the following specifications:
Measurements: 86 inches long by 12 inches wide
Print: Eucalyptus leaf scarf
Colors: Brown, red, orange and white scarf
Eco printing scarves is a time-honored tradition in which high quality undyed merino wool is tightly bound with natural materials to create a striking imprint. The eucalyptus leaf dyes are released only after the tightly bundled wool is expertly steamed, or boiled, for hours. Once this process is complete, the wool is unbound, the leaves removed, and the wool scarf cures for one week. Each of these scarves are then rinsed and ironed to ensure the designs remain in place but due to the handcrafted nature of this process, no two orange scarves will ever be the same.
