Made by Caitlin Hinshelwood.

A hand dyed and screen printed silk scarf with hand rolled edges. This design was inspired by a visit to the Museum of English Rural Life. The scarf can be worn as a head or neck scarf but equally looks beautiful framed for the wall.

Each scarf is printed in limited runs with no two colour ways ever printed exactly the same so you are guaranteed a unique piece.

An ideal gift or heirloom that looks great framed for the wall but can also be worn as a scarf, neckerchief, pocket square or handkerchief.

Approx. size 55 x 55 cm.

Hand wash cold.

Caitlin Hinshelwood is a London based artist and designer who produces distinctive collections of illustrative, hand-worked, printed textiles. Her products are often produced as carefully crafted limited editions or unique pieces. Her textiles maintain a strong sense of character and an accomplished use of colour. Traditional methods and processes for textile screen-printing and dyeing are central to her work.

Each fabric is hand dyed before being screen-printed using a complex process called colour discharge printing. The technique allows you to work on coloured grounds. After printing the fabrics are steamed to make the colours react and fix them. Each piece then has to be washed several times to further fix the colours. By printing with dyes the colours become part of the fabric and the handle is not effected. Any slight imperfections are part of the nature of these hand printed goods.

Much care is taken over the final finishes from hand-rolled edges to contrasting cushion backs and well chosen zip colours.

All products are handmade in the UK.
