Textured Linen Shawl in Espresso
This shawl has been woven from 100% Irish Linen & dyed using natural plant dyes. The weave of this linen has the most gorgeous texture, weight and feel.
This shawl is one of a kind & also the largest piece of linen in our store measuring 170cm x 170cm (67"x 67"). It can be used as a shawl, scarf or looks beautiful draped across the end of a bed or as an accent throw in the living room. The linen has 2 open weave seams that runs through in two panels which add to the design & beauty of this piece.
As with all our linen products this piece has gone through all the stages necessary to dye the fabric sustainably, we start with preparing the fabric for dyeing by removing any excess oils, wax or residue from the fibers. We then prepare the dye bath, in this case the colour was achieved by dyeing the linen with Cutch, a dye extracted from the heartwood of the Acacia Catechu tree. A small thorny tree native to South Asia, grown in Indonesia, East Africa and tropical America. This piece was dyed over many days, we then shifted the PH of the dye bath to achieve the colour you see. Once we are satisfied with the colour we wash/dry the fabric & sew the labels on by hand.
All our products are washed using eco-friendly PH sensitive laundry soap & softener.
