My son named this scarf! This scarf is a part of my Natural Collection, created by using all natural dyes and printing leaves using their own dye (tannin). The colours might be more subtle than other dyes, but the patterns are so delicate and intricate, celebrating the beauty of the nature around us. The colours blend and play together in beautiful and sometimes unpredictable ways and every leaf is different! 100% natural silk, semi-lightweight and semi-transparent. It’s my heavier weight one (I use 2 weights of silk).
I couldn’t not place this scarf in any particular season, the colours are a mix from various seasons, somewhere between Spring and Autumn, although the main colour is French navy. It’s virtually impossible to control exact colours with this technique but I really love the outcome and its natural feel. I just set up the stage and let the colours play! 🙂
All my scarves have hand-rolled edges that I do myself.

Iron or not to iron
Iron the scarf on a low setting (one dot), or just leave the scarf to dry freely for a bit more rustic feel (and easier care)! I would tend to iron this scar on a very low setting dry or when not too damp, because I like the texture, it will keep some it the “3D” effect of the leaves, and this is how it will be sent to you, unless otherwise requested.
Creases, spots and specs are part of the design and happen naturally in the process of botanical printing.
Please note that although I do take care to make sure the colours on the photos are as close as possible, they might still vary a bit from what you see on your screen, depending on your device and setting.
