30.00 40.00

This beautiful square scarf is 100% silk habotai and is elegantly printed with indigo dye and natural leaves. The leaf prints were created using only the natural pigments of real leaves in a time consuming, but completely environmentally friendly process known as "eco printing." No synthetic inks, dyes or pigments are used. Learn more about the eco printing process here: https://www.sesameseeddesigns.com/eco-printing/

Real leaves are gathered and bundled with the fabric making each scarf completely one of a kind. This scarf has prints of blackberry and cotinus leaves. They have been framed by a geometric squares dyed with indigo. The pattern was created using the Japanese method of shibori, in which fabric is folded and tied or clamped to create resist patterns. Indigo is one of the oldest known dyes and is created by fermenting the leaves of the indigo plant.

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.
