This hand-printed Prussian Blue Cyanotype silk scarf is unique because of the nature of the process. It is a 100% hand-rolled Chinese silk scarf, which I print by hand, using the photo-sensitive Cyanotype process, together with foliage and plants used as stencils from the Dorset countryside. Perfect for Summer, the scarf is soft, floaty and very elegant. Size-wise, @28cm x 114cm, it will drape elegantly around your neck without being too 'bulky' and would be a lovely accessory to wear with white linen.
Made to order, I am happy to take commissions for a Cyanotype silk scarf if you would like more of them, or ones with a different or specific design.
The Cyanotype process is a 19th Century photographic process that uses iron salts and sunshine to create a beautiful Prussian Blue colour; it is the original 'blueprint'. In the 1800s, botanist Anna Atkins was the first person to use photographs to illustrate a book by using Cyanotypes and this is the same process that I use today!
