Another interesting combination of fashionable colours for 2016. The main ones are saffron and magenta, which you can see on the photo.
Depending on your monitor, you might also notice the warm brown background, which adds richness and depth to this colour combination.
Let me tell you the story.
Initially I wanted to paint this scarf yellow and brown. But I couldn’t find the right brown in my palette of dyes, so I created it by mixing different colours, including red & turquoise. And yes, it did look brown when I painted it.
Imagine my surprise when, after steaming this scarf, my home-mixed dye had become a rich plum on the shiny devore patterns whilst remaining brown on the silk background.
Wow! I love this scarf. I’ll keep mixing colours just to see what happens…
Only available in this size and pattern.
