Description

This shawl was made for a dolphin lover for her wedding.
I painted the sunrise on a paradise island using silk dye and resist.
You can see shy seahorses, jumping dolphins, colorful and whimsical corals, and an exotic landscape surrounded by generous tropical sun.
*************************************************************************
Colors set by professional steaming process, so the silk dye bonds with the silk at the molecular level.
Colors are permanent and sun tolerant. They don’t fade, even after repeated washing. Silk dye leaves no texture on silk.
*************************************************************************
Made out of 100% silk chiffon, with hand-rolled hems.
Silk chiffon is an elegant, sheer fiber with a soft, beautiful drape and a crepe-like texture.
*************************************************************************
Hand wash in cold water using mild soap. Could be dry cleaned.
*************************************************************************
Size 22″/90″

I will be happy to paint a similar one for custom order.
The design could be made similar to the one on the picture, but not exactly the same, because I uniquely hand paint each item.
