Luxurious Crepe de Chine 10  silk  scarf/shawl,  created wholly with sustainable natural fibres and natural dyes. Hand dyed with pomegranate skin dye and iron, and hand printed with virginia creeper and acer leaves from my garden [SC226].


Fabulously versatile and elegant, you can wear this wonderfully soft scarf/shawl in a variety of ways.. during the day with casual clothes, or as a shawl in the evening for that special night out. 


In creating this scarf/shawl, the  luxurious Crepe de Chine silk was soaked in natural dye extracted from pomegranate skins. After the  leaves were placed, it was bundled up tightly round a copper pipe with a carrier blanket dipped in iron solution, which created the wonderfully mysterious dark background and crisp leaf outlines.   


It was then steamed in my trusty fish kettle for 70 minutes to release and fix the plant pigments. The tannins in the pomegranate dye combine with the iron to create light- and wash-fast colour.  


Due to the individual nature of the hand crafted process by which these unique scarves are made, the precise details of the scarf design and colour tone may vary slightly from this photograph.


Approx 185cm x 45cm.


Packaged in an elegant, ecofriendly By Maggie Naturally presentation box.
