HAND DYED - Silk Scarf - BUSHWALKAvailable Now
DESCRIPTION: Satin Silk offers a heavier weight in comparison to many silks and is one of the highest quality silks. The premium silk surface is soft and elegant. Each satin accessory is hand dyed in Heirloom's studio using assorted Eucalyptus leaves that are heated with natural ingredients that include tannins, citrus and alkalis. The process releases minerals stored in the leaves which bond with the natural textile (offering a colourfast result). The Bushwalk design offers colours in golden-green-oyster. Small contrast colours of grey and purple emerge from the dye or branch used in the technique.
MATERIALS: 100% Silk. Rolled end finish.
CARE: Easy care instructions are provided. Handwash only.
ARTIST'S COMMENT: "The aroma of citrus fruit and heated Eucalyptus oils fill my senses as I unwind the string that presses the textile surface against the native plant foliage. Over 40 species of Australian plants (Eucalyptus, Grevillea, Melaleuca and more) offer an abundance of beautiful natural dyes (minerals which are released when heated). The outline of the actual leaf is imprinted onto the cloth in exact motif and design composition. Every dye outcome is random and unique; influenced by the season and age of the plant” (Kim Shipton).
