A truly one of a kind, Hand Painted Silk Scarf featuring three circular blocks of traditional motifs. A design of tribal hearts on either side, and a cross in the center surrounded by tribal hearts, and if you pay attention, broken hearts as well.

This piece is aptly named "Crossroads of the Heart", because sometimes we come to crossroads in our life and need to make a decision on which path to take.

One of our more deep and meaningful pieces!




Our shawls measure approximately 72" x 22.5" (183 x 55 cm)


PICTURED HERE: Satin Silk.


CHOOSE YOUR FABRIC:

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. The patterns are waxed onto imported satin silk then colored over with a rich raven black dye and subdued gray. Only the highest quality German dyes are used to make these unique batik shawls!

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


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 please 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.




They can also be worn as headscarves or creative halter neck and strapless tops.

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