One of my pleasures is designing a piece with a certain person in mind. This piece was designed as a commission for a Parisian relative. The design was inspired by Victorian lace, which I love the intricate designs of and I knew the person I was creating it for would appreciate also. After researching and sketching, I combined elements of the lace within the design adding a colour palette that suited the person I was designing for.
With my favourite commissions I ask the owner for their permission to run a limited edition print. My original silk batik work is professionally photographed to a very high resolution and the design is then digitally printed onto very high quality silk.
This is one of 100 from that limited edition. It is available in both silk chiffon (very light and delicate) or silk habotai (a heavier but still very elegant silk). The photographed scarf is habotai, if you prefer chiffon, please send me a message with your order.
The dyes used are completely colourfast and the scarf can be gently washed by hand in a mild detergent or dry cleaned
If you have any questions about this scarf or my work in general, please do message me.
