Eco-PrintingScarves-20

 

Our one-of-a-kind scarves are sold Retail Only.

 

Eco-printing means dyeing and printing using plants and natural mordants like iron and vinegar, set with heat to make one-of-a-kind creations. We first experimented with eco-printing/eco-dyeing on cotton in the fall of 2019, just as the plant material we needed was disappearing around us!

 

Early this spring 2020, we had lots of fresh plant materials to experiment with and decided to try it on silk.

 

As summer progressed, we found new plants to try and also experimented with other mordants, etc...

 

When we discovered the results we got with silk, we were thrilled and hope you will be too!  These lustrous and luscious scarves are the result. 

 



April Showers - Product Image

April Showers

 

Leaves and blossoms in all the colors - mossy green, indigo blue, golds, even maroon -  just a little more subtle.  Like a rainy day in April.

Beech Cascade - Product Image

Beech Cascade

 

This started as a silk scarf and a cascade of Copper Beech leaves. It printed in varying colors of green, running the gamut from a bright spring green to a golden color. The sap from the stem ends printed as burgundy dots for an interesting addition. It appears closer the outside picture in real life, but lighting can change it.

Dreamland - Product Image

Dreamland

 

We just think this one looks dreamy.  Dogwood flowers and leaves on the ends are clear and the leaves and blossoms in the middle become dreamier... Along with the greens, there are hints of pink and pale yellow.

Faerie Glen - Product Image

Faerie Glen

 

We called this Faerie Glen because it has the look of a special place in the forest where faeries might dance. Leaves, bits of color here and there and bursts of sparkly light..

Graffiti - Product Image

Graffiti

 

This scarf was dyed 3 times!  It just seemed to "need" something, but finally, all those layers produced this scarf that just made us happy. It has lots of movement and a kind of "gritty" look - like graffiti!.

Melange - Product Image

Melange

 

Melange is a little bit of this and a little bit of that - in this case it includes oak, birch, beech, wild geranium and celandine - probably more that we just can't remember right now!
