Hand dyed and screen printed on large vintage habotai silk, hand rolled scarves. 

The scarf is printed in a limited edition of 9 with no two colourways printed exactly the same, guaranteeing you a unique piece.  The print is a celebration of the start of spring; plants and sun returning, and festivities associated with the end of winter - straw decorations and painted eggs.  The name Marzanna relates to a Slavic tradition where a Marzannaeffigy made of straw, eggs and fabric is drowned or burned to represent the death of winter.
