This pure silk scarf has been eco-printed using natural plant materials sourced in or near my home property in Maleny, Australia.
Colours: this scarf was printed with the addition of natural Cochineal dye, giving the scarf its magenta hues. Earthy yellows and deep black/greys define the leaf shapes to give the scarf a beautiful and delicate detail. Can you see the grevillea see pods?
Care instructions: Treat your scarf like any silk garment. Silk is delicate, yet resilient. Do not hang or leave your scarf in direct sunlight for long periods; and to clean, hand wash in cold tap water with a small about of hair shampoo or pH neutral soap. A natural shift in colour with occur over time with prolonged sun exposure and/or washing with detergents.
If needed, iron using the Silk setting on your iron.
