Millicent Blue is a hand painted silk scarf.
It is painted on 100% silk crepe de chine (14 mm). This richer weight, warm crepe de chine falls beautifully.
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.
Painting this silk scarf
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.
This scarf is presented in a signature gift box and packaged in a parent 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 first full photograph of the scarf gives the best idea of the real item. However, even this image fails to convey the soft, delicate, luxurious quality of these scarves.
