Silk Scarf - Dyed with Cochineal and Printed with Ferns

65.00

This silk charmeuse scarf has been dyed using a natural dye called cochineal and the natural pigments of real leaves in a time consuming, but environmentally friendly process known as "eco printing" or "botanical dyeing." No synthetic inks, dyes or pigments are used. You can learn more about my eco printing process here: https://www.cedardellforestfarm.com/eco-printing/

Real leaves are gathered and bundled with the fabric making each scarf completely one of a kind. This silk scarf has been printed with swordfern fronds. The swordferns created pale gold prints. The background is dyed with cochineal and is a shimmery pale violet. In some light is looks more pink, other times more purple. The color is especially beautiful on the luxurious silk.

The fabric of this scarf is silk charmeuse. It has a hand-rolled hem and the front side has a beautiful sheen while the reverse is matte. You can see the example of the hem and the two sides of the fabric in the last photo.

You will receive the exact scarf shown in the photos.

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.
