Sylvia Riley’s Botanica Australis textile collection is produced through hand dyeing superfine merino wool with eucalyptus leaves and indigenous plant matter. Each piece of cloth is a little different as each leaf has its own shape and size, and placement on the fabric will vary creating unique pieces to match the individual.

Materials: Superfine merino wool jersey scarf, dyed with eucalyptus leaves.  

Dimensions: (W x L) 50 x 190cm approx

Care:

  • To ensure longevity, handwash in cold water with pH neutral detergent for delicate fibres or wool wash
  • Rinse and dry in shade
  • Avoid hanging on metal rod/line as it may react with the dye
  • Warm iron

Working with natural dyes and fibres, primarily silk, linen and wool, Sylvia applies practised artisanal techniques to her work with a twist, often combining her favourite disciplines - shibori, batik, gutta - to create new effects. Her work is influenced by Japanese and Scandinavian aesthetics to offer beautiful lasting snapshots of the Australian bush.
