A deep purple, long and silky hand painted and hand dyed silk scarf! Large enough to be described as a wrap or shawl, it is smooth and ultra comfortable to the touch! Titled "Snowflakes". While there is no such thing as a snowflake in the tropics of Borneo, these lilac and white cultural Dayak motifs certainly do a good job pretending to be!

Made with traditional Batik techniques as done in Borneo. These beautiful, cultural patterns are painstakingly etched onto the silk with wax using a traditional Tjanting or Canting (a tiny copper spout on a little wooden handle), then painted over by hand with a background of luxurious, rich purple, leaving the traditional "Snowflake" design in the centre and sides to catch the eye of anyone you pass while wearing this.

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


I have used a heavy satin silk for this piece. Note the satisfying weight and silkiness when you envelope yourself in it`s elegance!.

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

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!
