In terracotta against a cream body, leaf motifs decorate this fine silk shawl from Java. Nuci creates the shawl, which is decorated using a technique called eco-printing. She collects teak leaves from her own personal garden and transfers their natural colors through a lengthy process. The leaves are enclosed within the silk fabric and steamed in order to extract their pigment, producing a printed effect. The crafting process ensure that no two shawls are exactly the same.
