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. I make a wide range of products. Silk and merino scarves, sun visors, purses, fridge magnets, gift cards, spec cases, aprons, and cushion covers, which incorporate a variety of dyeing techniques.
Rainbow Silk Scarf
100% silk scarf hand-painted in rainbow colours
The medium weight silk is a single layer with hand rolled hem edges. A bright, soft splash of colour.
size: 28 x 150 cm (11 x 60 inches)
The scarf is hand-painted and while the dye is still damp, the salt is sprinkled onto the fabric.
This draws the moisture to itself leaving behind a concentrated pattern of dye.
Once dried, the scarf is steamed for 2 – 3 hours. Steaming creates permanent, vibrant colour.
Care: Warm hand-wash using wool wash. Rinse in a small amount of fabric softener, (optional). spin in washing machine or air dry.
Iron using silk/wool setting.
