THE STORY BEHIND
Today, the poppy is seen as a symbol of remembrance for the men and women who died during World Wars I and II. Every November you will see many people adorning red paper poppies in memory of those who gave their lives for our freedom.
THE ARTISTIC PROCESS Each item is individually hand made. The scarf begins in natural white silk with the artistic design drawn by hand with a gutta resist.
WITH FRENCH SILK DYES the color is applied by hand with paint brushes creating brilliant results.
WHEN DRY the silk scarf is steam set to permanently set the color. Once steaming is complete each scarf is individually hand washed and ironed.
THESE ART PIECES take time and each are unique in their own way. I have made my best effort to show proper coloring of the silk and artwork in my photos,
THE FINISHED hand painted silk scarf is preshrunk and completely colorfast. Each scarf is hand cut and edges are hand rolled which may result in slight variations in the finished size.
SCARF SIZE approximately 9.5 " wide/ 70 " long -- 24 cm wide/ 177 cm long
