Elegant multifunction 100% silk poncho solar dyed in pink with botanically printed sycamore leaves in golden hues. A great accessory for everyday and formal events. Can be worn several ways. Only one available.
Gorgeous sycamore leaves were placed on a 20″ x 70″ length of silk chiffon that had been soaked in vinegar water. , A “cover blanket” that had been soaking iron water infused with magenta pigment for three days, was placed on top of the leaf covered fabric. This combination was then rolled tightly around a copper pipe, wrapped in compression tape, and boiled in water for 2 hours, causing the leaves to leave their imprints while blocking the pigment dyes that transferred from the iron cloth to the open spaces on the chiffon scarf. (For my pigments, I am recycling inks from my large format digital printer.)

Looks great paired with jeans, a skirt, over a long dress, or with leggings. Dress it up, dress it down.
Washable. To prolong life of silk, hand wash in cold water and white vinegar. Do not soak. Hang in the shade to dry.
Machine washing okay, but not recommended. If machine washing, use a mesh bag. 1/2 cup white vinegar + 2 teaspoons salt works better than any laundry detergent. http://theheartysoul.com/diy-natural-laundry-detergent/
