Hand woven merino wool gauze wrap. Bundled in a variety of Eucalyptus leaves. Dyed in a Eucalyptus, avaocado pit and skin dye bath. The background a very light subtle mushroom grey tone which the camera has trouble seeing. Quite frustrating really. But fortunately all clients have said their cloth is more beautiful in real life, which I agree 100%. I guess technology still cant capture what the eyes see with natural colour.
Wool Wrap with Tassels
Alkimia Botanical's Scarves are ethically sourced and come in a range of different sizes made with pure wool and silk fibres. The process is that of wandering and gathering the leaves, preparing the dye baths, bundling the fabrics with the leaves and simmering them in pots. This process can take up to 3 days sometimes longer depending on the process chosen, to produce one scarf. Each is wrapped with uttmost love and care to bring to you a one off unique piece of wearable art designed as nature intended. No one will ever have the same as you. The results are infinate.
CARE & WASHING INSTRUCTIONS
Alkimia Botanical's products are made with pure silk, pure wool and some items a combination of both wool and silk. Hand wash in cold water with appropriate washing detergent and dry in shaded area to help maintain the natural colours. Do not dry in direct sunlight. All dyes fade in time but you can assist its duration by taking care of it. Items can be ironed on appropriate settings of either silk or wool.
