100% peace silk, 40 x 180cm
"As light as air and as soft as clouds, silk is a sensationally luxurious natural fiber that has been used throughout history to design the clothes and textiles of royalty across the world. The process of creating silk cloth, however, was one that was needlessly harmful to the hardworking silkworm moth, the source of this delightfully soft, strong material. Our Peace Silk Handwoven Silk Shawl uses an enlightened, cruelty-free process to gather up silk fibers after newborn moths emerge, ensuring a better quality of life - as well as longevity - for these wondrous winged workers. The result is an indulgent, lightweight fabric with an amazing handfeel, finished with a line of delicate hand-knotted fringe on each end. A swath of cruelty-free Peace Silk, produced through a process that doesn’t require harming or killing newborn silkworm moths. Hand-woven texture is incredibly fine and beautiful, making this shawl a versatile and noteworthy fashion accessory.The perfect solution for stylish silk-lovers that want to shop ethically and responsibly while still enjoying the incomparable feel of imported peace silk." - I gratefully source these beautiful scarves from a small family business in Turkey before I dye them.
Wrap yourself or someone you love in fresh Indigo decadence!
"The Gift of Indigo"
I planted, grew, and nurtured these magical plants in my garden for months before they were ready to harvest for the dye. For that reason, these beauties can only be created during a limited window of time when the plants are fresh and growing before the frost comes.
This is an eco-friendly and sustainable craft that I would refer to as part of the slow clothing movement. Used fresh in a cold dye process, Indigo is capable of revealing this beautiful healing blue color. Because these pieces are naturally hand dyed, their slight color variations make every piece truly unique.
As a way of giving back, we are honored to support reforestation with One Tree Planted as part of our commitment to sustainability. A tree planted for every item sold. One more tree will be planted because of you!
*Hand wash with cold water and neutral ph soap, hang to dry. Please note that these are plant dyed by hand and colors may possibly change or fade over time due to the nature of botanical dyeing.
