The actual colour of these “Puce perfection” handmade silk wraps was created by 2 of our village grandmothers. One day they were busy spinning our silk as always when they saw some unusual light being reflected of the leaves of some nearby trees. Collecting the leaves and then with our master dyer and Thai Silk Magic founder, Amnuai, they boiled the leaves with a combination of crushed tapioca nuts, wild berries and local village tree barks.
the first result was a complete failure as although the colours were beautiful, we could not make them colour-fast. Adding some more natural mordants like eucalyptus leaves, tamarind bark, rosella wattle leaves and ants, we finally came up with what is one of our most beautiful wrap colours ever – thank you grandmas!
Comment: The actual measurements vary a little with our handmade processes but normally they are approximately 50cm – 70cm wide (20″- 28″)and 150-200cm long (59″-78″). Our Thai silk wrap measurements do not include the 10cm (4″) fringe at each end. Call this a bonus as many exporters include the fringe when giving scarf measurements.
