Dupioni silk scarf - Print 4/18Aug19
Size 58 x 136
A dupioni silk scarf botanically printed with a strong iron mordant, resulting in charcoal monochromatic prints with clear rust marks on the surface of the cloth. Richly detailed and textured, with the blombos in bloom and wild rosemary being the most prominent shapes. The spiky erodium flowers are almost spider like, and the bracken has given a stronger print that usual, with even the fern spores visible. A superb example of iron mordanted eco print.
Finished with a 2.5 mm rolled hem.
Print 4/18Aug19 features bracken, erodium, blombos in bloom, helichrysum wild rosemary and the seed pods of wattle.
