silk chiffon scarf Luna Moth on Datura
Tapestry - Textile - Silk Chiffon, Fiber Reactive Dyes
An extra long silk chiffon scarf in navy blue, white, and sea foam green. Darkness falls, and the luna moths flutter about the datura blossoms: The two moths at each end have tiny details in lemon yellow. Wrap it around and around and around a few more times; this unique scarf collaborates with the woman who wears it. Fold it into your bag to transition from casual to business to dinner and beyond. I designed it and painted for the one woman who has to have it. You know who you are.
This piece of wearable art took me many days to complete, because I knew exactly what I wanted to achieve. There is always an element of serendipity when working with dyes and silk; it makes it fun for me and often a control contest between me and my materials.
Measures a generous 11" x 90"
Completely colorfast and hand washable
Mails in a nice little gift box. I love to gift wrap.
