Marta Mouka: Silk Scarf in Marigold/Brazilwood

079019-b079019-c

Description

Marta Mouka’s scarves are in tune with Canadian nature in a very physical and literal way. The organic evidence captured on silk, documents the beauty, mystery, and healing properties of native plant material. Drawing inspiration from Ontario’s rural landscape, she collects leaves from her own garden to create these luxurious scarves.  All hand done using natural material, each scarf will slightly vary in colour, pattern, size and weight.

Care & Use: Hand-wash your silk scarf in warm water or use the delicate cycle in your washing machine. Use a detergent designed for delicate fabrics such as Woolite, Eucalyptus laundry detergent or Olive soap. Wash with like coloured items. Iron when a scarf is still damp on the high setting with steam on.

Material: Elegant, soft and pure silk scarf dyed bright, terracotta and gold silk/shawl dyed in Marigold/Brazilwood and eco-printed with Chestnut, Robinia, Coreopsis, Castor Bean, and Plum leaves.
