This table runner has been produced through a process called botanical dyeing, or eco printing. Natural leaves are pressed onto the made in USA 100% wool fabric, rolled on a pipe and steamed for several hours. The heat causes the tannins in the leaves to release and this creates a permanent, colorfast, print on the fabric. These pieces are not hemmed, but the wool fabric is not prone to fraying. We prefer to leave the pieces unhemmed so that customers can choose to use them as table runners, scarves, wall hangings, or other options.
This particular pieces features leaves of three types of eucalyptus, madrone, redbud, pine needles, Japanese maple, alder, oak, pecan, toyon berries and English walnut and measures 13.5" x 50". These table runners make thoughtful heirloom gifts and will arrive beautifully wrapped with a card for washing instructions and information about the artist and how the piece is made.
This piece can be hand washed in regular laundry detergent (we do NOT recommend Woolite), rinsed well and hung to dry. Iron if needed.
Sharon Mansfield is the co-owner of our store, The Tin Thimble, and has been perfecting botanical dyeing for over a decade now. These exquisite table runners are made by her in her Northern California studio. You can learn more about Sharon and her upcoming book "Lasting Impressions" at www.sharonmansfield.com
**All computer monitors display color differently. I have tried to get as close as possible to the true color of the fabric but please keep this in mind when placing your order.
