What is it?
A hand-crafted, exquisitely soft, cream bamboo jersey scarf/wrap, screen-printed with my original design. The cream colour is the natural colour of this fibre. It’s beautiful, soft, bright & light and will brighten up your face & outfit. (I’d like to say it will brighten up your whole day, but that might be going too far).
What’s on it?
Birds. Lots of birds. Actually, I’ll let you in on a secret. They’re ducks. And really I’ve broken many rules of nature. Because a) I’ve re-arranged them (yes I know, they’re not flying properly in formation at all); and b) I’ve just taken them to a slightly ragged silhouette. I’m a bit naughty like that. But what I wanted to convey with this design was freedom, and the joy of flight – hence that raggedness. So my ducks aka birds (because it was just easier to call them birds) are printed on both ends of the scarf (just on one side of the fabric).
Oh and the ink is great too, its water based, doesn’t include any nasties (no CFC’s, HCFC’s, volatile solvents, aromatic hydrocarbons nor phthalate). It’s also free of phenylalanine, caffeine and calories. Please don’t eat it.
What’s it made of?
Beautifully soft bamboo/cotton jersey (if you like numbers - bamboo 70%, organic cotton 30%). And no, it doesn’t feel like a bamboo tree. Honestly, it is just delightfully soft against your skin.
I’ve kept the natural raw edge. Actually that’s not true. I’ve gone to great effort to give it a beautiful clean precision cut on all edges. There might be slight variations along edges and widths – that’s because I’m not actually a machine (yet). Oh yes, handmade, that’s right.
How big is it?
This little beauty is 200cm long and 50cm wide. It’s actually sufficiently wide that I’m calling it a scarf/wrap and as you can see in the pictures, it drapes beautifully as a wrap. But it’s light enough that you can wear it as a scarf. To give you an idea of sizing and length, I myself (yes that’s me, the model making funny faces in the picture) measure a towering 5’ 2”.
How do I wear it?
Tie it. Knot it. Wrap it. Drape it. I must confess it looks best on necks & shoulders. It doesn’t look quite as good around ankles or thighs.
How to look after it?
Hand wash it in a gentle detergent.
Some is good, more is better.
If you want to buy more than one of my little darlings, just let me know cos your postage will be cheaper. My scarves just love snuggling up together in postage packs.
Happy Scarf Wearing!
