Silk satin Shroud
  • Silk satin Shroud


    To create the prints on this pure satin shroud, the artist has sustainably gathered local windfall autumn leaves of alder, grevillea, pohutukawa and olive. These botanicals are then wrapped up with the silk and, using a completely eco friendly process, the  colours and prints from the leaves are infused permanently into the fibres.  Our shrouds offer you an elevated aesthetic on a simple and age old tradition. Dignified, exquisite, natural and unique.


    This shroud comes in a set including hand dyed silk ties \sewn discretely inside to secure the fabric while wrapping. There are 4 hand dyed silk bandeau to wrap around the body and secure the fabric closed. A drawstring silk bag completes the set for storage and as a memento keepsake.

    Please refer to the section on shrouding for instructions on how to wrap.
