Soft, shiny, with lots of beautiful texture from the Sari Silk. 

Logwood was a revolutionary purple dye. Trunks of Haematoxylum or Haematoxylon campechianum were transported from central america from the late 1500's it was so popular and so valuable that ships carrying this cargo were regularly victims of piracy.  As a dye it's not very light fast, and is also very sensitive to pH, turning brown if conditions are too acidic. The plant is still used to create a stain used in cellular microscopy. 

Colour Description- Rise warm purple with pink streaks. 

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.

All these fibres, with the exception of the recycled sari silk have been professionally dyed to Okeo-Tex 100 certification. Sari silk can sometimes be prone to colour bleeding, caution is advised on the first wash.
