Hand painted silk poncho "blue landscape" One size wearable art #V16
I hand painted this dramatic original design silk poncho using fiber reactive dyes. This one-size-fits-all cocoon is very light weight and closed on the sides so you can wear it with or without something underneath. Misty mountains fade into the distance on both front and back with two weeping trees in the foreground on the front. I hand painted the scenes using brushes with a freehand technique building up the design in layers. I then steamed the pieces to permanently set the dyes.
The silk in this garment came from the recycled lining of a vintage Japanese kimono. Hang it on the wall as art when you are not wearing it. No one else will ever have a top like this one.
Hand wash separately or dry clean.
