Rebecca Desnos designs and makes a range of luxury, eco-conscious accessories, using natural fabrics and plant dyes.
The sumptuously soft bamboo scarves are hand dyed in small quantities using the traditional Japanese technique of Shibori, which is a form of resist dyeing. The bamboo fabric has a beautiful drape and lustre, offering a cruelty-free and sustainable substitute to silk.
The colours achieved from plant dyes are a beautiful, natural and long-lasting alternative to synthetic colours and actually mature over time. Time is invested in each piece to create something beautiful and long lasting.
No two items are ever identical as small traces are left from the natural processes. Rebecca embraces the variations between the depth of colour, texture and pattern of each piece resulting from the plant dyes. The geometric patterns of the scarves offer an intriguing and refreshing juxtaposition to the softness of the natural dyes.
