Using my favorite botanically printing plant, eucalyptus, combined with the common kitchen staple, onion skins I naturally printed this silk satin scarf. The orange and brown tones of the
eucalyptus pairs stunningly with the blue of indigo dye. The combination of rust and indigo is quite beautiful and unique.
The purchase of this listing is for one eco printed silk scarf with the following specifications:
Measurements: Approx. 90 inches long by 22 inches wide
Print: Various Eucalyptus Leaves and Onion Skins and a lovely Indigo background.
Eco printing scarves is a time-honored tradition in which high quality silks and wools are tightly bound with natural materials to create a striking imprint. The leaf dyes are released only after the tightly bundled silk is expertly steamed, or boiled, for hours. Once this process is complete, the wrap is unbound, the leaves removed, and the silk wrap 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 shawls will ever be the same.
