All rectangle silks will have VERTICAL stripes. I do have a separate listing for the few silks I do horizontal pastel stripes.
These are dyed with colorfast dyes so the color should not run, but are best washed in cool water with a mild detergent by hand and dried flat or hung. If silk is hand-painted, iron on reverse side only.
Please note that the size described is an industry defined size prior to processing. As such, the approximate finished size can possibly be smaller after dyeing. 8mm Habotai silk shrinks approximated 10% in length and 2% in width and 10mm Habotai silk (17"x17" size) shrinks approximately 3% in length and 1% in width
There will be slight variations between dye jobs and possibly imperfections as these are done one at a time by hand. The images are a great representation of what it will look like, but each one is unique! Please see my shop policies on issues with imperfections and exchanges.
I use non-toxic dyes which all conform to ASTM 4236 labeling standards for non-toxic materials.
The last image shows these silks in action on marionette's made by Mary of Mimi's Designs. This was a custom order and included colors not included in this listing. Check out her shop here:
