This beautiful silk habotai scarf features eco-printed* botanicals in lovely natural hues. Silk habotai is 100% silk in the lightest weight.  Machine stitched hems give a refined, finished look. This textile piece is handprinted/hand dyed with natural dyes and is one of a kind!

Approximate size: 13.5” x 68” 

Note: Colors may vary slightly from piece to piece and from photos shown.  Each is unique!

Laundering:  Please care for your eco-print piece as you would a fine garment.  Hand-wash in cool water with mild soap and minimal agitation.  Rinse in water the same temperature as the wash.  Roll in a towel and squeeze to remove excess water.  Hang or lay flat to dry. Do not dry clean. 

*Eco-Print is also known as botanical printing. Cedar Cottage Fiberworks' process uses natural fibers – cotton, wool, and silk; mordants appropriate for the fiber type; natural dyes; and iron. Pieces are typically created “2 for 1,” which results in mirror images with one brighter color and the other a darker or “saddened” color. Tannin-rich leaves are placed on one piece of fabric; it is then covered with another piece of fabric the same size that has been dipped in an iron-water solution. This fabric sandwich is then rolled on a wooden dowel rod, wrapped tightly with an ace bandage, and then steamed for
2-3 hours. The leaves imprint on the fabric, discharging various colors.  Unfortunately, not all leaves will work with this process, but the ones that do are magical!
