52" x 98" (2.75yards) (132cm x 249cm) First I hand dyed the linen in turquoise procion mx dye using shibori folding and sewing techniques. This is 100% ethically sourced all natural medium weight linen. (200 GSM/6 OZ) Then I hand silkscreened 2/3 times, layering the different images; of metallic gold grooming chickens and hot pink tiny goliath beetles. Images/patterns are original designs of mine, that are hand drawn, original photographs, or digitally manipulated objects. Each piece I then set in high heat so the textile ink I print with is washable, and then hem and topstitched the edges for beautiful finished look. Use this piece with love, as a beach or picnic blanket, an attractive throw in your living or bedroom, or even as a wrap/coverup/sarong. It is completely unique. No two pieces are alike. You will have a true one of kind piece that only gets better with time and wear. Discounts for Multiple Fabric Panels Purchased. Wholesale available.
