Materials and Techniques:
Handwoven in 2ply tussah silk with dark brown in the warp & orange weft. Tussah silk is made from tussah silkworms whose moths eat oak leaves rather than mulberry leaves. The yarn produced is a little fat & fluffy- more like wool yarn – although still fine & shiny. It has a beautiful soft drape & shine & adds glamour & sufficient warmth on a cool summer evening.
Inspiration/ Description of the Artwork:
My inspiration for this scarf is of course the Lunar New Year of the Tiger & as I love all animals especially those that are endangered- I hope my scarf will help people think about how to ensure the survival of such beautiful creatures.
