the details –
* luxurious silk dyed by hand in small batches using botanicals harvested from my garden and locally around the Berkshires (exceptions noted)
* variations in color or composition can occur – you are receiving a one-of-a-kind product!
the dyeing process -
each scarf is dyed by hand through a direct contact method and steamed for several hours. each scarf is unique and unable to be recreated
the printing process -
many scarves feature a block printed botanical design - to create a block print, I draw then carve my design into a sheet of linoleum. the block is then inked and printed by hand. the inks are all environmentally friendly.
