A range of 100% organic silk scarves inspired by butterflies.
From the range Jungle Fever, the Snake Bite scarf is a kaleidoscope of patterns made up of butterfly wings.
Combining her passion for butterflies with her skills as a digital illustrator, Audrey Westcott (founder of Papillon Belle) created illustrations for this luxurious range of 100% silk scarves.
Merging photographs of thousands of butterfly wings with animal prints to create colourful kaleidoscopes, these unique designs are printed on 100% organic silk.
Silk is a wonderful fabric in that it is cool in summer and warm in winter, so these scarves can be worn year round. Add a splash of colour to any outfit with one of these statement pieces.
What is Organic Silk?
Organic silk is created without the use of any chemicals or treatments, insecticides, pesticides or synthetic additives. Organic silk is most often produced in small villages by indigenous people and is the choice for the purest silk. Organic silk farming is a highly sustainable crop with cocoons being produced when the silkworms are about 35 days old. Organic Silk is grown in 22 countries all over the world.
The main determining factor in identifying if silk is organic is the dyeing processes. The use of 100% natural dyes made from tree bark, vegetables, wild grasses and flowers provide the best option for purely organic silk. In addition, the mulberry trees the caterpillars feed on are grown organically, without pesticides or fertilizers.
The silk fabrics are hand woven and dyed by hand using natural dyes. In addition, all the processes including extracting, spinning and weaving are done by hand.
Organic silk is naturally hypoallergenic and resistant to dust mites and mold. Silk is also a breathable, thermal fiber that helps balance body temperature.
Healthy organic silk can be more expensive than synthetic fibers.
