This beautiful silk scarf's design is created from an assortment of rose, sweet gum and maple leaves, interspersed with pine needles that I collected from my mini farm. The gorgeous red/pink color is a result of cochineal bugs-an ancient method of obtaining Inca red from aphid like bugs in South America. The scarf length is 8" x 72" and it is 100% pure silk. The imprinted colors are a rich kaleidoscope of reds, off whites, bronzes, greens and gold. Every scarf comes with a tag with the story of its making. A unique and unusual gift!

Eco or natural dyeing or printing is the collecting and processing of Nature's leaves, plants, fruit and flowers to create rich, beautiful, permanent prints onto protein fibers such as silk and wool. Look closely to see if you can identify the plants used. You will often see not just the variety but both the positive and negative shapes of the leaves and flowers. (this is not "sun printing") The colors and shapes are the ACTUAL colors from the plants that are released during the long and time consuming process.

Each piece is hand created by me, artist M Theresa Brown on my North Carolina minifarm studio!

Care: hand wash in cool water with mild soap, drip dry, iron as needed.
