This hand painted hand woven silk scarf is inspired by the Autumn colours of the beech leaves at sunset in the autumn.
Made with the finest quality silk yarns, the warp has been hand painted in shades of russet, reds, and rust allowing the colours to flow from one shade to another and crossed with a hand dyed weft of copper bringing a richness and shimmering irridescence to the scarf.
The herringbone weave pattern has been chosen to compliment the colours and patterns of the leaves and trees and the twill structure gives a beautiful soft drape and sheen.
Each piece is individually designed and has been carefully woven on a traditional 8 shaft floor loom, creating an individual and luxurious silk textile with a focus on colour and quality. This one-off artisan textile is finished with hand hemstitching and a Skye Silks label.
Skye Silks studio looks across Jaine’s Croft and the moorland to Macleods Tables. Shrubs and trees huddle against the old dry stone walls covered with lichen and moss. Little streams rush across the land and there is always colour from the plants, flowers, leaves and berries through the year.
Jaine has created The Croft Collection celebrating the colours of her Croft in Dunvegan on the Isle of Skye.
Your scarf will be delivered beautifully packaged in a Skye Silks gift box.
