Botanical Print / COPPER COREOPSIS
BOTANICAL PRINT COREOPSIS is created using coreopsis flowers harvested from our garden. We use a "direct contact" dyeing method where the flowers are rolled into the silk and steamed for hours. The ribbons are then dyed in the bath of coreopsis flowers to create an overall hue of coppery-coral tones. Enchanting modern-vintage feel with a hint of bohemian vibes.
The base color is a coppery orange with a hint of rose in the undertones. The flowers range from coppery-orange hues to dark charcoal gray. Each ribbon varies.
Each ribbon is one-of-a-kind and truly unique.
Plant Dyes are more subtle and complex than those created by synthetic dyes. You are purchasing a "living color" that is unique and one-of-a-kind. While each lot of color is dyed in the same manner, with the same plant materials, slight variations & unique characteristics will make each ribbon special. Each ribbon is wound on a antique style wooden spool. 100% Habutai Silk Bias Ribbon. Silk weight 10mm.
Our habutai silk ribbons are washable and reusable! Machine wash separately gentle cycle/cold, or hand wash. Use mild pH neutral soap, plant dyes are "living" color that can be shifted by chemicals and drastic changes in pH. Tumble dry on low or hang to dry. Iron when just barely damp on medium heat on the back side of the fabric.
