Leaves of Maple, Plectranthus, Liquid Amber and Jasmine together with blossoms of Hydrangea and Fynbos grasses blanketed in freshly pressed and fermented juice from merlot grapes.
Fresh, dried, whole, nibbled, wind damaged, broken, incomplete leaves are placed on a stretch of silk. Rolled, bound tightly before heating to extract and coax the pigments and tannins from the foliage permanently on to the silk. Each scarf a wearable artwork made with nature. Leaves of each season reflecting and forever held in each scarf.
