This eye catching organic cotton scarf has been printed with the natural pigments of plants & berries in a time consuming, but environmentally friendly process known as "eco printing" or "botanical dyeing." No synthetic inks, dyes or pigments are used.
Plant materials are gathered & bundled with the fabric making each scarf completely one of a kind. This fair trade scarf was dyed with a combination of rooibos tea & black tea resulting in a variegated, warm beige background. The splashes of green, blue & lilac were made with nettles, rose petals and elderberries..
After dyeing, all the dye materials were added to a compost heap in my garden.
The scarf is made from fair trade, organic cotton. It was handwoven & sewn by a craft cooperative in Kerala, India. It is lovely, lightweight & cool to wear.

Eco-Printing requires the application of heat & pressure to fabric, often resulting in a more textured appearance of the fabric. While small wrinkles in the fabric may ease over time, they are a semi-permanent feature of the eco-printing process.
Due to monitor differences, actual colours may vary slightly from what appears online.
