Hemp silk cloth - Print 1/13Jul22

  • R 6,875.00

 

king size – 242 x 142 cm - unfinished

 

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 cloth is not as wide as the linen bed throws. 

This print features a swirl of locally foraged plants including rusty orange eucalyptus, blombos in bloom, dotty slangbos, scribbles of casuarina needles and the beautiful curve of willow. Very dramatic on an off white base.  The overall effect is vibrant and detailed, with grey tie marks along the one edge.

The piece has been left unfinished and up to the buyer to decide how to use it. The hemp silk is a precious fabric and not always available.
