The silk scarf design is taken from an original painting of a Tui feeding on the common flax or Harakeke (Phormium Tenax).
Several flax plants grow along the front of Sue’s garden which is overlooked by her studio. The brightly coloured yellow and red flowers are a beautiful spectacle in the summer, especially when the beautiful iridescent Tui (Prosthemadera novaeseelandiae ), birds endemic to New Zealand, come to feed, boisterous and busy working up and down the four metre flower stems eating the nectar.
Treat yourself to this luxury hand-finished scarf and feel the soft caress of satin silk next to your skin. Feel beautifully elegant when you wear this unique design.
Hand stitched rolled hems, satin silk 12 momme.
Colourfast and expertly printed to capture the fine detail of the original artwork by internationally renowned artist Sue Wickison.
