Burnout Velvet Shawl in Black with Hand-Painted Turquoise and Green Gingko Leaves
A poncho that can be worn as a scarf, made of the devoré velvet. The fabric is sheer silk chiffon, hand dyed a dark gray tone with a pattern of velvet gingko leaves that are hand-painted in a watercolor style. The velvet is filled with permanent dyes in blues, greens and black.
• One size fits most:
Once the fabric is made, it is sewn together so it slips over your head to be worn as a poncho, shawl or scarf.
It can be paired with jeans or with a special dress.
This garment was pre-washed as part of the dying and hand-painting process. A cold, gentle cycle followed by a hot drying cycle will make it softer.
• Silk chiffon backing with rayon velvet pile.
All natural materials make it luxuriously soft.
