Celtic Spiral Silk Scarf. About the Designer, Louise Loughman
Handmade in Co Monaghan by Louise Loughman, who studied Visual Art and Textile Design. Originally Louise specialised in printed textiles, but once she discovered silk painting she never looked back and loves the way the colours flow and blend into each other on the silk. She went on to experiment with the style of batik, an ancient Indonisian craft of using hot wax as a resist to block dyes from going into certain areas of the fabric, she loves the natural fluid flow of drawing with hot wax.
Louise has become an experienced batik artist, painting on silk. Each of her scarves is a handcrafted original piece inspired by Celtic folklore. The colour influence is taken from Ireland’s beautiful floral landscape.
Creating beautiful gifts for women. Handmade in Ireland.
