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.
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!
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.
