one of a kind. beautiful, inside & out.

an ethereal thing of beauty, the cielo scarf is handmade of the softest whisper of organic, fair trade cotton.  lovingly bundle dyed using local in season organic +/or wild hand picked flowers.  a truly natural artistic expression, each process starts with an imagined floral impression which blossoms into a wild element of one-of-a-kind surprise and delight.  seamed into a open ended reversible tube, it can be worn either polished or raw edged by turning it either way, the organic cotton feels like a puff of cloud around your neck & will give that certain 'je nais sais quoi' to the simplest of outfits. 

it's like baby clothes for adults...

simple. modern. timeless. well made to be worn well.

**Please note that all of my goods are hand made using recycled, vintage and/or new eco, sustainable, organic materials. I spend countless hours putting my love into each piece I create starting from hand picking the fabric, hand washing & drying, dyeing, designing, drafting & cutting the pattern to sewing, stitching, ironing....  natural dyeing is a very lengthy process involving days of preparation from scouring to tanning to mordanting & finally immersing in the precious botanical dye stuff.  the results are always surprising & the inherent beauty of natural dyed textile are the nuances of coloration that gives each dyed piece it's one of a kind, unique characteristic.  naturally dyed textiles are gentle on the environment whereby eliminating the cocktail of toxins associated with synthetic dyeing process but it is an incredibly involved & time consuming process.  naturally dyed fibers also fade with time & exposure to the sun can quicken the fading process so it's good to be mindful of hand washing separately or with like colors only when absolutely necessary with very gentle ph neutral detergents & drying naturally out of direct sunlight.  with vintage or recycled materials, there are inherent markings that some may consider "flaws" ~ I personally find that it's these beautiful little "scars" that give each piece it's own special character, imparting a uniqueness that I could not create with a perfect pristine brand new piece of fabric. I love the perfection of imperfection and I don't discard fabrics due to these "scars". Please keep this perspective in mind if you are thinking of purchasing any of my goods.
