Hand Woven and Hand dyed Raw Silk Jacket
Hand woven raw silk jacket and hand dyed with pink & yellow hibiscus, bougainvillea, silver dollar eucalyptus, and unknown found flowers from around my neighborhood. Before I dye each piece I walk around my neighborhood collecting fallen flowers with my son Skye. We're also known to quickly pull the car over if we spot a good patch of fallen flowers on the sidewalk.
Due to the handmade nature each jacket will dye differently. There is a lot of different phases that this jacket goes through. From setting up the warp and weaving,scouring, mordanting, collecting flowers, dyeing, washing again, blocking, and then lastly sewing. Every piece that I make is unique and made with loads of love and care. Please allow 3 weeks for me to custom make this piece for you. Hand wash and air dry.
