The scarves are 100% silk and dyed with flowers Lourdes grew last summer.
22-in square charmeuse silk 19.5mm – slightly heavier than crepe de chine, sheen on one side and matte on the other. Very luxurious and smooth to touch.
All natural dyes react and bind differently on various types natural fibers when applied. For this reason, finished products always vary and may not look exactly like the photos. The unique markings on every single piece amplifies its unique beauty making it one-of-a-kind.
Spot cleaning only. A naturally dyed textile requires special care and minimal washing to make it last over time. Think of how you would care for your other precious possession. Same degree of care is need for your new silk scarf. If the entire textile needs to be washed, hand wash in cool water with neutral pH soap. Hang to dry and keep in shade while drying.
