Gum blossom scarf
Artist and Designer Shelley Barton lovingly captures the native fauna and flora surrounding her home studio in Bunbury, Western Australia and translates her drawings and watercolours in to beautiful hand-crafted scarves.
Gum blossoms evoke whimsical smiles, the smell of eucalyptus and childhood memories of gumnut and bum blossom baby adventures. Coaxed open by the heat of the Australian bush, these little firecrackers completely outshine the foliage and gum nuts for their brief time in the sun.
Shelley captures this quintessential Australian floral, woven into a backdrop of gum nuts and leaves.
Scarves measure approximately 45 x 145 cm, are digitally printed on sheer chiffon (100% polyester) and hand finished with a professionally rolled hem in a pretty matching light blue thread. Hand wash in warm water. Colours will vary on different screens.
Designed, made and packaged in Western Australia.
