Soft, shiny, with lots of beautiful texture from the Sari Silk.
Most usually seen on glazed pottery, this unpredictable colour is formed in the kiln when iron in the clay reacts with iron oxide, manganese oxide and quartz in the clay. The Chinese have been making objects with a Celadon glaze for centuries, with certain shades clearly denoting social status. One particular colour called mi se was exclusively reserved for the royal household. For years this shade was unknown, but an archaeological dig in the 1980's uncovered a cache, revealing this precious shade to be a drab olive. Valued because if its rarity, rather than its beauty.
Colour Description- Mint Green with streaks of duck egg and purple sari silk texture.
This range of fibres will use the same fibre composition, and the collection will rotate through different colours and collections over time. Some colours will be restocked, and others may be temporary to allow space for other colours. Even if a colour is restocked the nature of the sari silk means it's unlikely that the next batch will be the same "dye lot". If consistency is going to be vital for your project please bear this in mind.
