Silk Scarf by LAS FLORES DE GRETA
High quality Silk
Completely handmade. Made in Galicia.
The flowers of Greta has created this silk scarf of the highest quality, hand-edged and printed like all its pieces by means of ecoprint, a wonderful experimental technique that consists of transferring the pigments of leaves and flowers to fabrics of organic origin and that gives as a result unique pieces that speak of nature, of slow life, of connecting with life...
The colors of this piece run the palette of greens, browns, ochres, greys and even violet tones, garnets and roses provided by different species of flowers. Las Flores de Greta work with seasonal leaves and flowers, representing in many cases the Galician flora to which its founders belong.
The result of this long process is an inimitable piece, of a versatile size (45 x 180 cm) with a brightness, quality and lightness that makes it a complement that you will want to feel every day.
Each piece is accompanied by an explanatory card where the value of this unique process is put in value so that if you choose it as a gift option, that person understands how it has been elaborated.
All garments can be washed in cold water with a neutral soap, dried in the shade and ironed with a lot of steam so that the silk recovers its natural shine.
Las flores de Greta is a team made up of three women, Antía, Uxía and Nuria, which was born at the end of 2017.
After learning the ecoprint technique, we began to work with it and develop it on different fabrics to analyze its possibilities. Gradually, based on trials and errors, a lot of experimenting, playing with the times, varying tissues and analyzing the effect of pigments and their variability within species throughout seasonal cycles we began to get the first samples so that little by little we have been creating a line of products that reflect the values we wanted to work with.
Ecoprint is a technique that consists of transferring the natural pigments found in leaves and flowers to fabrics of organic origin.
We develop the technique through a succession of handcrafted processes, which we work and integrate into our daily lives. The first, which gives rise to the others is the collection.
Every day we go out to the mountain at first hour to collect leaves and wild flowers. Depending on the time of year in which we find ourselves, we work with one or another species.
