Par Avion print on fuji silk.
Hand dyed green silk and hand screen printed imagery using a discharge print process. There is some variation in how the imagery comes out due to variables in the process, making no two quite the same.  This design was developed as part of my graduate collection many moons ago.  The back is a plain brown linen with an invisible zip across the bottom.
