CK's Spring Summer Collection: Natural-Dye Silk Scarves
These incredibly beautiful and light-weight 100% Silk scarves are designed and created from scratch by CK. CK got her design and visual arts degree from Australia's Wollongong University. She incorporates her skillful artistic abilities with natural-dye that requires patience and creativity. She uses :
-indigo (dark blue/light blue)
-madder root (red/ pink/ salmon)
-cochineal (purple/ heathered pink)
-onion skin (light shiny brown)
-green tea (green)
-beet (light red)
-concord grape skin (light purple)
-eucalyptus leaves (greenish yellow/brown)
-black walnut (grey/brown)
-soot ink (black)
to create colorful natural-dye silk scarves.
The process of natural-dye usually takes 3-5 days. It requires boiling, dipping in the dye, pre-washing, multiple soaking and washing, air-drying and finishing it with an iron. Designing is another step and requires several hours to complete one design. The colors will become even prettier overtime.
Care: Dry-clean only. If necessary, wash with good-quality wool shampoo and cold water. Do not twist or scrub. Let it dry naturally.
Caution: Please note that due to the dying process and original silk fabric's texture, there could be a small dot of color in the green tea-dye scarf. It is not visible and can be worn without even noticing it .
