This mini Hand Painted Silk Scarf is a beautiful little square of wearable art! Makes for a one-of-a-kind, unique, creative yet surprisingly affordable gift! "Secret Butterflies" is a bit of luxurious silk which hides four butterflies within it's tribal pattern!


This little guy features hidden butterflies within a design of traditional Dayak flowers and suns. Use this bright piece on its hot pink background to show yourself off, highlight your hair, outfit or handbag!

Waxed, then carefully colored over with only the highest quality German paints to ensure long lasting brightness in color. The silk is then dried, set with textile fixer, then boiled twice and ironed to ensure color steadfastness. After being boiled and ironed, it should only bleed in the wash very minimally for the first couple of times.


Each piece takes anywhere from 6 hours to 3 days to complete. Whew!!!


To give your Silk Batik a long and happy life, please look after it carefully with these tips and hints and a bit of common sense:


- Do not machine wash or tumble dry.
- Use cold water rather than warm or hot.
- Silk is a natural fibre like hair, as such you may find that a little shampoo will be gentler and give your batik a lustrous, shiny glow as opposed to using harsh detergents.
- NEVER EVER BLEACH!!! Good Grief!
- As you can see, there might still be some paint pencil marks around the design. Please do not try to erase them, they will come out naturally in the wash over time!


My Neckerchiefs (neckerchieves??) measure approximately 21" x 21" (55 x 55 cm). Everything here is made to order so while we may not be able replicate colors or designs exactly - you will get a beautiful piece of wearable art unique to you! :):)

They can also be worn as hair ties, head bands, wrist accessories, handbag accessories or made into cushion covers!

The luxury of colorful silk batik always makes for pleasantly surprising and very welcome gifts!

Let me know if you would prefer something similar in a different color or size. I cannot reproduce exactly as these are all completely handmade and one of a kind.
