Berenice Claret is a hand painted silk scarf.
It is made from 100% silk crepe de chine (14 mm). This richer weight, warm crepe de chine falls beautifully.
HERE are pictures of the story behind the painting of this silk scarf
It is approximately a 90 x 90 cm (35"x35") square scarf painted using STEAM-fixed dyes with hand-rolled hems and can be hand washed. This is NOT a digitally printed scarf. It is an unrepeatable art piece.
I have hand painted this scarf mixing the colours by eye making it more like a painting. As with any hand painted work there's always signs of the artist's hand which adds to it distinctiveness and exclusivity. Unlike digitally printed, mass-produced or even "limited run" printed scarves you will be purchasing a one-of-a-kind. This process of hand painting always results in variations, shapes and patterns differ, and colours bleed into each other creating a matchless piece.
Each scarf is presented in a signature gift box and packaged in an outer shipping box.
I have endeavoured to capture an accurate image of the colours of the scarf, yet the mercurial essence of colourful silk and its representation on a web page is variable. I have found that for this scarf the tied photograph of the scarf 'snail', the close up and the boxed picture give the best idea of the real item. However, even this image fails to convey the soft, delicate, luxurious quality of these scarves.
