SPIRIT OF THREADS
Natural Dyed Silk Shawl
A unique shawl natural-dyed with plants, vegetables, minerals and fungi.
This soft, hand-woven, silk shawl is first made by our friends in Kerala and then specially dyed by Petra Holmlund in Stockholm. Petra has worked with the natural-dying technique for over 15 years. 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 110 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. When necessary, wash by hand in cold water and mild soap, then hang dry.
