Large organic cotton scarf | Plant-dyed in Canada

The fabric is prepared before being dyed to get the best possible hold. After dyeing, it is set aside for two weeks to allow the dye to soak into the fabric, then washed - and even rewashed to limit possible initial color changes - with a neutral soap and ironed or steamed. It is then carefully wrapped. It will be ready to wear when you receive it.
About the process
The hand-dyeing process is an ancient, artisanal technique where fabric fibers interact with nature's pigments to create their magic. Variations in color may be present with this dyeing process, but I take care to note the more important specifics in the descriptions when this is the case. Each item is unique and perfectly imperfect and these particularities are the charm of this type of coloring.
It is possible to check the variant With personalization to transform its plain scarf into a unique scarf with color effects - impressions of flower petals, traces of pigments in confetti, effect realized by various vegetal dyeing processes.
The result varies according to the base color, the inspiration, the season, my intuition, the available plants. If you have a crush on a particular style or effect, you can drop me a line afterwards, I will take it into consideration. However, you are buying a surprise, so you have to be comfortable with that aspect!
Color can also change over time. Your scarf is nature and designed to be able to go back once at the end of its life, so it's only natural that it will change with you over time. However, proper care will allow you to keep it for many years. It is therefore recommended to hand wash it only when needed, with cold water and a neutral pH soap, then hang it up to dry out of the sun. If needed, you can use a hot iron or a steam iron to smooth it out.
