A happy, green Hand Painted Silk Scarf featuring a wave of triangles and squares! Enjoy your silk scarf as the eye-catching spark that dresses up an outfit! Title: "Naïveté"

This bright beauty was inspired by my fascination of child-like Naïve Art. Where although simplicity is key, it can still create an explosion of color and shine!


Our muffler scarfs measure approximately 72" x 11" (183 x 28 cm)


PICTURED HERE: Jacquard Silk


Choose your material!
Jacquard Silk - Sports an underlying weave giving the piece delicious depth and texture.
Satin Silk - Classic smooth and shiny silk!
Chiffon Silk - Elegantly light and sheer - the most delicate and fragile of all the silks.
Peace Silk - A hand woven, no-harm silk suitable for vegans. Has a soft, muted glow and shine.




ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

Made with traditional Batik techniques as done in Borneo. A free flowing wave is waxed with wide brush strokes across the length of Jacquard silk, then angular shapes are added to complete the design. The silk is then hand dyed with a lime green dye. After the wax has been removed from the silk, the design is carefully hand painted over in Only the finest quality German dyes are used to create these pieces of Batik Wearable Art!

After drying, all my batiks are set with textile fixer, then double boiled and ironed to ensure color steadfastness and long-term durability.

Each piece takes anywhere from 6 hours to 3 days of work. Whew!!! x_X

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 gracious!!! 0_o


They can also be worn as ascots and cravats!


A word on color: We have tried our best to portray the colors of our items. Having said that, please do remember:

- monitor settings DO vary so do keep that in mind as you browse.
- We hand mix all colors which means while we can replicate approximate color, we can never replicate exact color except by fluke.
- Colors are temperamental thingies. Shades change with the weather, time of day, and temperature of the room. Some colors we create are seemingly never seen again! This is the beauty of handmade - having something no one else can ever have.


Shipping: We do combine shipping! Just send us a message here or on borneobatikraft [!at] gmail.com if you are interested in purchasing multiple pieces and let`s figure out which flat rate cutoff you fit under!
