Sherit Levin: Devore Silk/Velvet Scarf, Blue in BranchesSherit Levin Textiles
Sherit Levin creates scarves, wraps and accessories made from beautiful soft, shimmering silk-velvet.The devoré patterns are inspired by serenity found in nature. A single scarf is described as "a poem resting on your shoulders."
The original pattern of a winter scene, with raindrops clinging to bare branches, was made from solid velvet. A paste that removes some of the rayon pile was applied with a stencil. The scarf was then dyed a nighttime blue and handpainted with dyes in a watercolor style.
100% silk with 100% rayon pile
This scarf was washed as part of the dying and hand painting process. A cold, gentle machine cycle followed by a hot dryer will add to its softness. It may be ironed on the reverse side.
