Quality gift items made from hand-dyed natural fabrics. All fabrics are washable, and the colours are permanently fixed into the fabrics. My colours are bright and strong to reflect the vibrancy of the Nelson Region. Each item is unique  and individually hand-made, washable and the colours are permanently fixed into the fabrics.

100% silk scarf with a hand-painted batik design

Ships From: New Zealand

Sold By : Unique Threads Categories: ,


The scarf is made with 2 layers of medium weight Habotai silk.  Size: 22 x 150 cm

It is sewn so there are no visible edges, which gives the scarf a neat finish.

The batik pattern is a resist technique using cold-water wax which is drawn on with a pipette.

The wax is then fixed into the fabric, before the dyes are individually hand-painted with non-toxic dyes

Salt is then sprinkled onto the fabric, which draws moisture to itself, to leave behind a pattern of dye.

Once dried, the scarf is steam-fixed to create strong, vibrant, and permanent colours.

Care: Hand-wash using wool wash in lukewarm water, rinse in a small amount of fabric softener, (optional).  Spin in washing machine, or hang to dry.

Iron using a silk/wool setting.

Dyeing, designing and sewing fabrics are my passion and I offer a range of quality products, which are designed using hand-painted natural fibres.

Influenced by my environment, each day presents itself as a creative adventure.  I have been a Nelson Market stall holder for the last 26 years.

I have always made a range of gift items which are easy to post, and over the years have been very popular with the overseas visitors and locals alike.

Only a few product lines are listed on this website, but if you would like to enquire about a product that you have seen at my Nelson market stall,  then feel free to contact me either via my wesite, facebook page, or at my studio.  Which is open Monday – Friday 10 till 4, phoning first is recommended, or visit me at my stall. Saturdays from 8am till 1pm
