Three silk ribbons all patterned with this year’s fresh chamomile flowers.
They have all been created by the flowers actually leaving a print, and the colour, on the silk.
It’s often possible to actually see individual flowers.
The first ribbon on the LEFT of pictures 2 and 3 is a really intense golden orange - for serious orange lovers!
The MIDDLE ribbon is also patterned all over but with more pale areas which create contrast.
The ribbon on the RIGHT has fewer flowers on a creamy and pale apricot background.
The patterning is irregular with more flowers in some areas than others.
The ribbons are approx. 2 metres long and 5cm wide (2”).
All the ribbons are pure silk and have soft, hand frayed edges.
I collected the flowers growing on a patch of waste ground in the town.
I just collect what I need and there are thousands left for all the bees and other insects.
The ribbons are sent rolled on pegs to avoid wrinkles.
