What is it?
A hand-crafted, exquisitely soft, teal bamboo jersey scarf, screen-printed with my original design. This colour is bright, beautiful and cheery. It brings out your own healthy glow and makes you feel happy just looking at it. (I’d like to say it will brighten up your whole day, but that might be going too far).
What’s on it?
My hobo tree. It’s kinda scruffy and I just love it. The design is actually a Silver Wattle (Aussie native!), and I photographed it on Snug beach, Tasmania. It’s 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 jersey (if you like numbers - bamboo 70%, organic cotton 20%, spandex 10%). And no, it doesn’t feel like a bamboo tree. Honestly, it is just delightfully soft against your skin. This is also a beautiful weight, draping nicely as a scarf or as a wrap.
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 ~40cm wide. The length should be ample for a whole variety of heights. 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” and it is on the long side for me.
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.
