Botanical Print Plant Dyed Silk Hankie


Ask a question

Silk hankie, naturally dyed in my studio with plant dyes. 100% silk. I used a natural dyeing process where eucalyptus and other herbs are rolled into the silk. It is one of a kind. Colors are copper, light brown, and green. Hankie measures approximately 11" x 11". Note: Styling props on photos aren't included, only silk hankie.

Perfect as wedding hankie, ring box gift wrap, wedding favor gift wrap, photography styling prop, or tie as a bracelet.

Every step is slow crafted by hand in my studio. From hand dyeing silk using natural dyes from plants embracing imperfection to lightly pressing for a natural texture. You are buying a "living color" that may appear to change depending on the lighting. The silk scarf may have marbling and speckles from the natural dyeing process.

I ship orders within 1 business day from Monday through Friday. On holidays, I will ship the following business day. Select Select your preferred shipping service (STANDARD, PRIORITY, or EXPRESS) on the Shipping drop down menu at checkout.

Hand wash with pH neutral soap, natural dyed colors are effected by a change in pH. Air dry. Iron on medium-high setting. Dry floral stems before wrapping with silk ribbon, plant food will react to the silk color.

How are your silk ribbons made?

Following a wabi sabi lifestyle, every step is slowly crafted by hand in my studio: from hand dyeing silk using plant dyes from flowers, roots, foliage, nuts, fruits, and woods; sourced from fair trade companies or locally foraged, to tearing it organically into ribbons embracing imperfection, lightly pressing for a natural texture, and rolling onto handmade wooden spools.

“Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.” - Lao Tzu

You are buying a "living color" that may appear to change depending on the lighting. Each silk ribbon is one of a kind and may have nuances, marbling, speckles. Plant dyeing embraces imperfection and find beauty in its authenticity.
