This kit offers eco printers and natural dyers (even the beginners) the perfect tool to create a beautiful and unique eco printed and natural dyed silk scarf.
The ingredients are ethically sourced in South Asia and South America and quite unique. The SIlk scarf is made in a local community using the finest local silk (weft) and cotton (warp), and will take any colour beautifully.
They will allow to create a beautiful scarf using the botanics in your area. The dyes are in their original wood form and as such will allow you to extract up to 5 dye bath each. The mordant will allow you to treat up to 1 kg of cloth (cellulose and silk).

It contains:

- a beautiful 45 cms x 140 cms, hand woven scarf from Northern Thailand, sourced in Chiangmai during my recent travel there.
- 50 grs of Sapan wood, a sustainable dye, ethically sourced in Northern Thailand during my recent travels there which produce a beautiful range of pinks and reds.
- 50 grs of Logwood, a sustainable dye, ethically sourced in Mexico and brought to Europe using a low carbon footprint route. It will give you strong blue to lovely pale violet depending on the dye bath.
- 140 grs of dry mordant ready to mix to help creating great colours and give light fastness to your piece.
- a small sample of silk so you can test the dyes before your make your choice.
a set of instructions.

I am a textile artist and work with Eco Printing and Eco Dyeing all year around teaching physical classes in Scotland and travelling to Asia to swap skills with local groups. I have developed a mordant for cellulose and silk fibers which will give you great results with clear prints and vibrant colours from your leaves and dyes.
If you are a natural dyer you will like playing with my two wood dyes, they will give you a range of colours if you modify the PH of the dye bath. If you are an eco printer you will love the brightness of the work you can achieve using my elements.
My wood dyes can be reused several times unlike dye extracts.
You can choose of the two colours for your silk scarf and use the other dye for material you have at home, I think the Logwood looks quite spectacular with the silk but its a personal choice.

I am there for you... I believe my instructions are clear but if you have an issue once you start please email me on bettysbeautifullife [!at] gmail.com and I will answer clear questions related to this kit and instructions.

lovely design for an outdoor project; will actually paint in the spring so i don't have current experience with the sturdiness of the stencil itself. easy easy transaction and delivery.

Took awhile, but totally worth the wait. Thank you very much.

Response from Betty

Dear Noahssuitcase, thank you for your review last April, I am happy you liked your stencil at the end and I do apologise for the delay as explained in our exchange. Could you elaborate on why your rating is so poor? would it be because of the delay? We aim at pleasing our valued customer so I would like to be able to improve on this rating... many thanks Betty

Die Schablone kam in sehr gutem Zustand an. Ich hatte noch keine Gelegenheit, sie zu verwenden. Aber ich freue mich schon darauf.
