Gingko leaves drift down on one end of an organic cotton scarf in rich maroon; a few leaves that went astray grace the other end. Muted white ink for an ethereal effect.

Scarf fabric is fair-trade, 100% certified organic, knit in a family-run mill in Costa Rica. Designed and printed in the USA in a local small business. A generous 87" long and 15" wide for you to loop, bundle or trail.

About the Art

Artwork is created from my own photography, in which I "capture" the "ghost" of the flower, and applied with a light hand for an ethereal, non-opaque look for an almost Zen ink painting -like effect.

I have added stretch to the ink to allow to easy movement, enjoyment and longevity. Delicate or hand-wash is recommended with flat air dry to prolong the life of the garment.

 

The ginkgo leaf is a popular motif in Japanese art. Since ancient times the tree has been planted in gardens and temples in China, Japan, also close to sacred places and castles, the veneration due to its fire protection, seeds, and beauty.

In the moonlit night
Ginkgo leaves are falling, too,
Softly, eternally.
