This huge, very light weight scarf is beautiful way to protect yourself from too much sun exposure. It can be worn in so many ways, as a skirt or bathing suit cover, as a neck scarf or head covering.
Made from Organic Cotton and hand dyed using plants gathered from the forest around my home as well as black tea.
The subtle leaf pattern is difficult to capture on film but will capture your heart in person.
This long slow process of infusing herbs into fabric allows the qualities of the plant to bond with the fabric, thereby embracing its medicinal qualities.Wearing this special piece is a way of ingesting herbs through your biggest organ...your skin!
For more information about the medicinal benefits of specific plants used in dyeing please check out the “About dye plants” page.
Please note: plant dyeing is an organic process and colour results will always vary slightly. Sometimes patterns or designs show up in my work and sometimes colours are richer or brighter in certain areas. This is all part of the magic and mystery of working with plant dyes.
