CRAFTY: Art-to-wear. Handpainted with plant inks on handwoven soft cotton. Enjoy this collectible for a lifetime - as a scarf or sarong, or treat it as an art, hang it and preserve it. ▪️This glorious illustration by Balinese artist, Pak Septala, communicates the breathing culture of the Old Bali, and the island's most indispensable attribute, its people; their beauty, warmth, generosity and dedication to preserving their culture. At the age of 63, he realizes his dream to illustrate life-size paintings, but even better, using only plant-inks and his bamboo sticks on textiles. This treasure was completed within 40 hours which required a layered process of painting and dyeing to bring out the depth of plant-ink colors.  

EARTHY: Plant inks gifted by ketapang leaves for 🖤 and mango leaves for 💛

Care to Last: cold wash, mild detergent, dry in the shade, no dry cleaning as heavy chemicals mess up natural dyes. Mend when torn.

GIVING: Together we support the livelihood of small artisan communities.

SizeLENGTH 70in | 178cm. WIDTH 32in | 100cm. Hand twisted tassels.
