Handprinted Cyanotype Silk Scarf

'Foliage, Ferns & Feathers' 100% Silk Scarf handprinted using the Cyanotype process.


This is a unique design from my limited collection of Nature-inspired silk scarves and is hand-printed using the Cyanotye process and 100% hand-rolled Chinese silk.
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!

Each of my Nature silk scarves is a one-off design.

How this was made

I print on 100% hand-rolled Chinese silk by hand, using this vintage photo-sensitive process with foliage 'stencils', either sourced from the Dorset countryside or my garden. Your scarf is individual and may have a mixture of prints of ferns, Sycamore, Honesty, Jasmine, Cow Parsley, Nigella, grasses, feathers or other lovely pieces of Nature. It will depend on what is in season!

What's included in the price?

This is a thin, beautifully soft and elegant silk scarf, 28cm x 114cm that will drape gorgeously around your neck without being too 'bulky', like a lot of scarves these days.
It would also be lovely as a hair accessory.
Wash gently by hand with a mild eco soap and iron with care.
