Rose Leaf Eco-print Scarf – #2

rose leaf scarf 2 blog” Rose Leaf Eco-print Scarf – #2 “

11 inches by 60 inches

This is the perfect scarf for a nature lover, gardener or those interested in eco-conscious  clothing.

100% silk scarf eco-printed with the natural dyes released from rose leaves; colors are then enhanced with a final post mordant dip.

The rose leaves are sourced from a pink rose-bush growing in our front garden. This process allows for a beautiful image to be imprinted on the silk, with some of the vein details showing in some of the printings. The final result is a scarf patterned with leaf prints of overlapping blacks, greys and grey-greens.

This item is currently available for purchase within Canada. Please email studioh@shaw.ca for more details.
