100% Cashmere Large Shawl

Size: 105x155 cm

Price: $385 SOLD

My textiles are made from finest natural fabrics, with focus on artistic surface design. They are hand dyeand contact printed with local plants. 

The process is completely natural, a true alchemy, so the final colours and prints can't be predicted or repeatedand each piece is one-of-a-kind work of art. 

Luxurious Cashmere and tannin and colour rich eucalyptus are the best combination for a guaranteed success! 

The main challenge in creating this particular piece was choosing a specific folding technique which would allow to show individual leaves separately, creating an interesting pattern at the same time. Each small square tells a story – it’s a memory imprint of the time and place when the leaves' and my paths crossed our chance encounter.

100% Silk Shawl

Size: 150x200 cm 

Price:  $260

Hand dyed by Yaja Hadrys this luxuriously soft 100% silk shawl was contact printed with eucalyptus leaves and bark which I collected around my place in Sydney. Plants were wrapped in the cloth and then steamed for 3 hours. This process is completely natural. Each original design is impossible to reproduce because the results are always unexpected and it is a one-of-a-kind work of art

About Yaja


Nature is my inspiration - the beauty of the Polish forest, the stark but subtle mysteries of the Australian bush land, and the vast, powerful energy of the ocean.

I love direct collaboration with nature in my textile work. Firstly, I forage for flowers and leaves which are artistically arranged on material, before being wrapped in bundles and steamed. Nature then imparts its beauty on the fabric.

This  organic process is a true alchemy so the final colours and prints are never predictable, nor able to be repeated. Put simply, my designs are nature's work of art.
