Indigo and Leaves Silk Scarf

Indigo and Leaves Silk Scarf


Silk charmeuse is the most elegant of silks. It is a muted crepe on the backside and lustrous satin on the top. This scarf has been dyed using only the natural pigments of real leaves in a time consuming, but completely environmentally friendly process known as "eco printing" or "botanical dyeing." No synthetic inks, dyes or pigments are used. You can learn more about my eco printing process here:

Real leaves are gathered and bundled with the fabric making each scarf completely one of a kind. This has been printed with eucalyptus and cotinus, or smokebush, leaves gathered from my neighborhood. It has also been dyed with indigo, one of the oldest blue dyes that comes from fermenting leaves of the indigo plant. The combination of leaves and indigo create shimmery blue and gold colors that make this scarf especially luxurious.

Eco-Printing requires the application of heat and pressure to fabric, often resulting in a more textured appearance of the fabric. While small wrinkles in the fabric may ease over time, they are a semi-permanent feature of the eco-printing process.
