EUCALYPT DYED SHAWL - Silk - MIDNIGHT
Satin Silk is a premium quality, heavy weight silk which is soft and elegant. Each shawl is an individual production piece, 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).
COLOUR: Abstract hues of green, oceanic blue and lilac.
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 are selected and offer abundant, beautiful natural dyes. The characteristics of the leaves are imprinted onto the cloth. Every dye outcome is random and unique; influenced by the season and age of the plant” (Kim Shipton).
