SPIRIT OF THREADS
Big Natural Dyed Silk Shawl/Cape
A unique big shawl natural-dyed with plants,begetables, minerals and fungi.
This soft, hand-woven, silk shawl is first made by our friends in Kerala and then specially dyed by Petra Holmström in Stockholm. Plants, vegetables, minerals and fungi are beaten, pressed, and folded directly into the fabric. The result is a unique, one-of-a-kind textile - a wonderful, vibrant, portable firework Each shawl is accompanied by a description of all the materials used in its particular plant dying process.
Material: 100% silk
Size: 110 x 200 cm
Durability and care: Weaving and spinning by hand leads to the threads being wonderfully irregular – a work of the hand. Gently care for your new silk garment, and you will have a friend for life. Begin by hanging it out to air. If necessary, wash by hand in cold water and mild soap, then hang dry.
