Large square scarf/shawl in ribbed silk, hand printed with Eucalyptus Nicholli from my garden and sweet chestnut catkins from my neighbourhood [SC237].
The scarf was botanically ‘eco’ printed by submersion and simmering in a dye bath of eucalyptus bark, onion skins, vinegar and water. An old spanner was thrown into the dye bath to add some iron.
This wonderful natural process mobilises the natural pigments and tannins in the plant matter, which then form lasting, light-fast and wash-fast prints on the silk, which takes the prints beautifully.
The large [90 inch square] shawl would be a highly versatile addition to any wardrobe.. a totally unique and striking piece suitable for day wear, for the evening and even the beach.
