I am so excited to introduce to you our new line of plant dyed silks. Starting out with our scarves. Each one is botanically dyed by hand with the flowers and plants Igrow or mindfully forage from the land Ilive on.
This scarf was botanically dyed with Avocado pits. Some believe the energy of the plant matter is infused into the silk. Spiritually avocados are though thought to represent love, fertility, prosperity, and health. The ancient Aztec culture believed they were a symbol of love and believed them to be an aphrodisiac. This color does feel very romanic to me! (also avocados make every dish more delish!)
This design is Shibori - a Japanese dyeing technique that typically involves folding, twisting or bunching cloth and binding it, then dyeing. Traditionally indigo was used for this technique.
The details and care: The 100% silk known as flat crepe, a light weight silk with a beautiful subtle sheen, measuring 22" x 22". It was pretreated carefully to make sure it is colorfast in cold water, you can hand wash with a pH neutral soap or use your machine separately on the most gentle cycle if necessary. It can also be steamed or ironed on the lowest setting, or a silk setting if your iron has that option.
Actual color may vary from the images and video shown. I tried my best to capture but every monitor or mobile display has a different capability to display colors!
