This Habotai silk scarf, with abstract images, using natural dye, in shades of brown and rose, created by eco printing of various plants measures 180cm x 36cm. It truly is a piece of wearable art! This scarf is one of a kind.
It is my hope, that the woman who owns one of my scarves feels that she has an item that is something completely exclusive.
Wearing this piece of wearable art often and in various situations, whether at work or at play shows an expression of her individuality. Scarves are an inexpensive, feminine and classy accessory any woman can use. My scarves are designed in a large variety of colours and styles.
After awe-inspiring trips to Thailand and India, in recent years, my theme of choice is the Lotus blossom. In Hinduism and in Buddhism, the lotus flower represents purity of body, mind, and spirit.
Natural dye shades, brown, rose eco printing silk scarf
I use different fabrics (silk, cotton, linen). Use my airbrushed and dyed scarves in several ways. This eco printed scarf can compliment a blouse, dress or jacket. It can be tied in all manner of ways. Scarves enhance any outfit and make a compelling fashion statement.
For many years, my dedication was to printmaking: intaglio, silkscreen and lithography. I studied at Montreal Museum of Fine Art, School of Art & Design and later went on to study Fine Art and Art Education, at University. My main interest, at the time was silkscreen. Later, I returned to Ontario, where I enrolled in a course in Surface Design at OCA, in Toronto. Silkscreen printing was the technique used.
Following a recent trip to India, where I met with fabric artisans in Bhuj, I was inspired by their techniques of dyeing and tying fabrics to create magical results. This has lead me to discovering the new world of natural dyes, indigo, and shibori techniques.
