Another one from the Leo full moon infused brew. Handwoven pure wool shawl, dyed in a eucalyptus dye bath, wrapped in Oak and a vatiety of different Eucalyptus species to bring a vast array of colours. No plastic wrap is used as a barrier in any of the works to produce isolated clean prints. Shawls like these allow the plants to dance and set off reactions with each other and I am a huge fan of what comes naturally in chemical reactions. It makes for a feast for the eyes exploring the cloth and all the marks made from this true form of eco dying.
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.
