Indigo Silk Linen Shawl - Large Botanical Print. Hand printed and handmade eco scarf with indigo by mbpblue designs.
This beautifully feminine silk linen hand printed shawl is eco friendly.
Carefully handmade using organic indigo pigment, rainforest leaves collected from queensland australian garden, ethically made cotton muslin from Asia, and the magic of an ancient organic process from Japan.
After completing this organic printing process, and after many days of waiting to cure the fabric, it is lovingly rinsed in rainwater with lavender and air dried. This beautiful large botanical print shawl of rainforest leaves, is then quietly hand pressed and rested.
It's slow art making at its best.
Generously sized 220cms x 70cms (84in x 27in), it is a perfect lightweight cover-up during summer for yourself or the baby.
It also folds up into nothing which is ideal for travelling. Also available in straight linen.
Due to the nature of the eco friendly organic process and requirement of long periods of fine weather for curing of the indigo pigment into the fabric, these shawls are created in small batches, each one being a unique design and pattern.
TEXTILES - These items are created using an ancient Japanese method for impregnating fabric with indigo pigment. It is an organic process and can take up to 30days for the fabric to cure. It is highly recommended that you hand wash your textiles in gentle manner with gentle fabric wash. Dry out in the shade and if needed, use a cool iron.
