Natural silk scarf that has been hand dyed with plant material then hand painted with henna paste in an original design.
This scarf is a unique product, original and timeless which you can wear daily or at special occasions, very light and soft, a special gift for you.

Henna'ing silk requires more time and patience than henna'ing the body. Henna is permanent on silk & wool - no worry about it washing out or fading away. Every design is freehand henna'ed with a little cone as i would for body art. The stain is instant the moment the henna paste touches the silk, there's no wiping off or washing it out & starting over!

A silk scarf is perfect to wear any time during the year. As a natural fibers, both silk & wool keep you cool in the summer and warm in the cooler months. A silk scarf makes a luxurious gift for someone you love or a much-deserved treat for yourself!

Each piece of functional fiber art is one of a kind. If you fall in love with a design and would like to purchase a similar scarf, please email me a request and I will try, to the best of her ability, to replicate the item for you.

As a Canadian natural henna artist, fall & winter can be a little slow in the body art department. So i translate my love for henna & it's traditional designs into functional art. Those who can't have henna body art (usually due to their profession) are thrilled that I have created henna'ed silk scarves & other pretty henna style decor that they can enjoy while being henna-free themselves.
