Hemp silk bed throw - Print 1/7Jan21

 

king size – 226 x 141 cm

 

An ultra-luxurious but still robust version of the linen bed throw.  The botanical printing is done on the silky side of the fabric, resulting in a detailed and precise lustrous surface and a more smudgy and abstract matte side. This fabric comes in a standard roll width, which means that the throw is not as wide as the linen bed throws. 

This print features a swirl of locally foraged plants including rusty orange of eucalyptus, Queensland silver wattle just coming into bud, long tapered wild rosemary and scribbles of casuarina needles. Very dramatic on an off white base.  The overall effect is vibrant and detailed.

The finish is with a hemp linen border of 3 cm, visible on the silky side, and with mitered corners. The hemp silk is a precious fabric and not always available.
