Rachel Jones-Jones is an artist based in Norwich, Norfolk who works with natural matter to create beautiful botanically dyed pieces. All scarves are created exclusively for Atwin.
This colour is No. 2 in a limited edition series of scarves dyed with locally sourced botanical pigment by artist Rachel Jones.
The smoky grey dye of these scarves is made from oak marble galls foraged in Norwich. Oak galls occur when certain wasps lay their eggs in the tissues of the oak tree. The tree reacts by producing chemicals, resulting in the formation of a perfectly round gall. Once the wasps emerge, they leave the gall and continue their life cycle. Oak galls can be harvested from the early autumn onwards.
Each scarf is individually hand dyed and sewn in Norwich and has its own irregularities and details.
