SILK TABI SCARF TITLE: “Wildflower Montage”

DIMENSIONS: 65 x 180cm

STORY: Three Spring Wildflowers found at the Grampians in Victoria.
Beautiful wildflowers adorn the Grampians every spring - combining them together to make this bright and bold coloured scarf was the challenge.
Centre: Grevillea Aquifolium is a shrubby plant commonly called Holly Grevillea (or Toothbrush Grevillea). The plant grows between 1 and 2 metres and flowers in the Grampians from September to April. Right/Left: Prostanthera Rotundfolia is an evergreen branch shrub which may reach up to 4 metres high. It has purple cup shaped flowers between September and October. Extreme Right: Epacris Impressa is also known as Common Heath. The flower is the floral emblem of Victoria. It grows as a woody shrub and reaches up to 3 metres in height flowering from September to March.

“The artwork for our silk scarf collection is re-living our photography in a fresh way. Using a variety of techniques our challenge is to create a captivating image, often from nature’s details, that looks beautiful as a scarf.”

INCLUDED WITH YOUR SCARF: Tag with story about the image/Tag with 'About Silk' and Artist's Bio/ Gift Tag.

THIS PURE SILK CHIFFON SCARF ( AWTA Tested as 100%Silk and colourfast ) is a sheer fabric with a soft, beautiful drape and fine grain texture. It is strong yet has a 'float in the air' lightness with colours coming through on both sides. This Silk Chiffon Scarf is 8mm (35gms per square metre) which is slightly heavier with superior colour and durability than the standard light weight 6mm (26gms per square metre). Silk Twill (12mm: 52gms per square metre ) and Silk Chiffon are very different in terms of weight, touch, colour vibrancy and feel.

ABOUT SILK: Silk production (Sericulture) was first developed in Ancient China. Being an exquisite, precious fabric, for many millennia, it was one of the most zealously guarded secrets in history. A few Amazing Reasons why Silk is the Queen of natural fabrics: Shimmering natural sheen that never diminishes/ Caresses your body in softness/ Keeps you cool on hot days and preserves body heat in the cold/ Absorbs perspiration while letting skin breathe/ Promotes skin rejuvenation and healing/ The most hypoallergenic fabric/ Environmentally sustainable and biodegradable/ Washes easily with a mild soap such as baby shampoo/ Colourfast fine Italian inks.

CARE: Enjoy your silk garment - our printing techniques produce colours that will not run or fade. With fundamental care, this silk scarf will maintain it’s vibrant colours and quality ‘Silk’ feel for many years. As Silk is a natural fibre avoid drying in direct sunlight. Also, avoid contact with bleaches or solvents with alcohol such as some hairsprays.
Hand Washing - preferred
Use lukewarm water and a mild non-alkaline soap such as baby shampoo. Avoid soaking and rinse with a few tablespoons of distilled white vinegar added to the clear water. Avoid wringing or twisting and roll in a towel then hang to dry. Avoid using dryers.
Most wrinkles can be removed by hanging the scarf in the shower and letting humidity work. While the scarf is hanging a steam iron can be used carefully avoiding wetting locally.
If necessary use a cool iron setting (Silk Setting) on the back of the damp scarf - avoid too much heat.

FINISH: Neat machine hemmed
