This is a unique design from my limited collection of Nature-inspired Cyanotype prints and is a hand-printed Prussian Blue Cyanotype silk scarf.
Perfect as a special gift, the scarf is soft, floaty and very elegant. Size-wise, @28cm x 114cm, it will drape elegantly around your neck without being too long, like a lot of scarves these days. You could even wear it as a hair accessory.
Made to order, I am happy to take commissions for a Cyanotype silk scarf if you would like more of them, or ones with a different or specific design.
The Cyanotype process is a 19th Century photographic process that uses iron salts and sunshine to create a beautiful Prussian Blue colour; it is the original 'blueprint'. In the 1800s, botanist Anna Atkins was the first person to use photographs to illustrate a book by using Cyanotypes and this is the same process that I use today!
I print by hand, using this 19th Century photo-sensitive process and foliage 'stencils', either sourced from the Dorset countryside or my garden.
100% hand-rolled and hand-printed Chinese silk scarf.
