Hand painted silk poncho "Phoenix" One size wearable art blue green #V17

$ 160.00

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.  Stylized birds rise above waves and other motifs on both front and back in shades of blue and green.  I hand painted the art 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.
