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!

The simplicity of child-like shapes and brush strokes does not take away from the elegance of fine silk and brilliant pinks and purples!

Entitled "Shapes" as it is inspired by the delicious SHAPES snacks! Baked, not fried! :D


Our Neckerchiefs (neckerchieves??) measure approximately 21" x 21" (55 x 55 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.
Cotton-silk - Thicker, more durable material with a beautiful bright, glossy sheen!






ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

Waxed then painted freehand with wide brush strokes, the silk is 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!!!


- 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!




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.




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:

- 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!
