The fabric is a luscious Crepe de chine silk soft to the touch with a suede like finish. This fabric drapes beautifully. This scarf is hand painted by me from a live model in an atelier setting. I painted this long rectangular scarf on an easel. When I apply my brush of dye on the silk I can't change it. This is a totally one of a kind original artwork. I am painting in the moment, sometimes the figures appear to be melting because the dye is like water color it flows on the silk. I love to watch the bright colors melt into one another and create something bright and vibrant onto the silk. This is a long scarf and can be worn many ways. It can be folded, wrapping your face in a swirl of color, and leaving you with the secret knowledge of the original painting you are wearing. It can also be worn so that the figures are showing - perfect for wearing to a gallery opening, art fair, or night out. It a gorgeous art piece and would look beautiful in a frame.
Hand wash with mild detergent and hang to dry, or dry clean. Use silk heat setting to iron.

Please contact me with any questions regarding time needed for your order; I will do my best to insure your order arrives when you need it. You will find the option to select expedited shipping available at check out. Custom orders require longer time frames; contact me to discuss when you need it by and how long it will take for me to create it.
All orders will be shipped via USPS.

Where possible, I do accept custom orders. Good ideas include an alternate color selection for a scarf style already featured, alternate dimensions or fabric type, variation of style (my most popular hand-painted florals are irises and sunflowers, but other flowers are good options, as are dogs and other animals, as I often do scarves featuring pets and wildlife). I am happy to discuss any and all ideas you might have. I will send you photos for approval before shipping any custom order.
