Handmade eco-printed silk scarf. In order to coax the colours from the leaves onto the silk, Emma pretreats the silk and then rolls the leaves up in the silk before adding heat. The water, time of year and everything else they are bundled with will all influence the final colours and as such are hard to replicate. They capture a moment in time and place. Scarves are best hand washed with a ph neutral washing liquid and iron when slightly damp.
Dimensions W 40cm x L 145cm, colours may vary from those on screen
