This is a unique design from my limited collection and is a hand-printed Prussian Blue Cyanotype silk scarf, which is 100% hand-rolled Chinese silk. I print by hand, using this 19th Century photo-sensitive process with foliage 'stencils', either sourced from the Dorset countryside or my garden. Your scarf is individual and may have a mixture of prints of ferns, Sycamore, Honesty, Jasmine, Cow Parsley, Nigella, grasses, feathers or other lovely pieces of Nature. It will depend on what is in season! Perfect as a special gift for your friend, sister, mother - or yourself, the scarf is soft, floaty and very elegant. Size-wise, @28cm x 114cm, it will drape elegantly around your neck without being too 'bulky', like a lot of scarves these days.
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. FREE delivery to UK mainland postcodes by Royal Mail (2nd class).
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!
