Left: Eastern Gray Kangaroo

Iconic Australian animals.

STORY: Having the three iconic native animals together from separate images was a real challenge- the Emu chicks were an unexpected bonus.I was so pleased that we also made a red (“Outback Aussie Mates”) variation.
The Kangaroo and Koala are marsupials carrying their young in a pouch.
Early explorers described them as creatures with heads like deer, standing upright like men, and hopping like frogs! Koalas were described as “New Holland Sloths, torpid, senseless creatures void of elegance”. Emus are the second largest living Bird. In Aboriginal mythology, a creation myth says that the sun was made by throwing an Emu’s egg into the sky.

Touch the Silk…View the Art… Share The Story….“The artwork for our silk scarf collection is re-living our photography in a fresh way. Using a variety of techniques our challenge is to create a captivating image, often from nature’s details, that looks beautiful as a scarf.”

INCLUDED WITH YOUR SCARF: Designed Bluyonda box with magnetic lid / Tag with story about the image / Tag with history of Silk and Artist’s resume.

THE SILK STORY:Silk production (Sericulture) was first developed in the Neolithic, Yangshao culture, Shanxi, around 4000 years BC. Being an exquisite, precious fibre, for many millennia, it was one of the most zealously guarded secrets in history. Shimmering sheen that never diminishes/ soft and very light weight/ Cool in Summer – Warm in Winter/ Absorbs perspiration yet lets skin breathe/ Promotes skin rejuvenation/ Hypoallergenic/ Eco-Friendly/ Biodegradable/ Washes easily/ Strong.

This Pure Silk Chiffon ( AWTA Tested as 100%Silk and colourfast ) is 8mm (35gms per square metre) which is slightly heavier with superior colour and durability than the standard light weight 6mm (26gms per square metre). Silk Twill (12mm: 52gms per square metre ) and Silk Chiffon are very different in of weight, touch, colour vibrancy and feel.

CARE: Enjoy your silk garment – our printing techniques produce colours that will not run or fade. With fundamental care, this silk scarf will maintain it’s vibrant colours and quality ‘Silk’ feel for many years. As Silk is a natural fibre avoid drying in direct sunlight. Also, avoid contact with bleaches or solvents with alcohol such as some hairsprays.

HAND WASHING: Preferred: Use lukewarm water and a mild non-alkaline soap such as baby shampoo. Avoid soaking and rinse with a few tablespoons of distilled white vinegar added to the clear water. Avoid wringing or twisting and roll in a towel then hang to dry. Avoid using dryers.

IRONING: Most wrinkles can be removed by hanging the scarf in the shower and letting humidity work. While the scarf is hanging a steam iron can be used carefully avoiding wetting locally. If necessary use a cool iron setting (Silk Setting) on the back of the damp scarf – avoid too much heat.

FINISH: Neat machine  hemmed
