Fresh, dried, whole, nibbled, wind damaged, broken, incomplete leaves are placed on a layer 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 seasons reflecting and forever held in each scarf.
Wear it gently. Wash only if you must. Do not dry clean. A gentle hand-wash in cold water with a drop of ph balanced organic shampoo. Air dry in the shade. Place a towel over your scarf before a cool ironing. Store in a hanging position. Keep out of direct sunlight. Wear with love.
