One of a kind, hand-crafted, long, floaty, 100% silk scarf, decorated with the marbling technique. Fleur is marbled on both sides, with one side predominantly purple and blue while the other has large orange and yellow flowers on a blue and purple ground. Fleur is super-light and floaty, as you can see in the video, and would fabulous with a pastel summer dress, a sharp suit or some denim dungarees!

All Marbled Beauty scarves are delivered gift boxed and wrapped in tissue paper.

Marbling is a traditional process going back centuries. This Fleur scarf has been created in the Western tradition, frequently used in the past to create beautiful endpapers in high-end books, but the flowers are a simple form of Turkish Ebru, which as far as I know was the first marbling technique to include figurative details like flowers and animals. First of all the silk is soaked in a mordant which helps to fix the paints or dyes, and thoroughly dried. Then a pattern is created by floating the paints onto a viscous liquid called ‘size’ in a scarf-sized marbling bath. The paints will maintain their true colours rather than mixing with each other, but they can be raked, combed and swirled to create a huge variety of different patterns. Fleur is decorated in a pattern traditionally called nonpareil, with Ebru style flowers on one side. When one side has been marbled, the scarf is dried, mordanted again, dried again and then marbled on the other side.

While every attempt has been made to represent colours correctly, they will vary from screen to screen. However, if you are unhappy with the colour I accept returns, provided you use tracked postage.

All marbled beauty scarves as washable at low temperatures and can be tumble dried on a low setting although we recommend hand washing in warm water and drip drying. Iron with a two spot (UK) iron.

I got this as a gift, and the recipient loved it and thought it was beautiful. Came with a pretty certificate and set of care instructions (which weren't in any way demanding, but helpful to have). I love that these scarves are made through a process which makes each one completely unrepeatable, so you really feel you're giving a special gift.

Something really special! The scarf is beautiful and floaty and made a lovely gift for a friend. It arrived quickly. The ‘certificate of authenticity’ is a nice touch, making it clear that this is a unique, handcrafted product.
