An eco-friendly memento to treasure

Whether it’s a wedding, anniversary, birth of baby, anniversary or death of a loved one, flowers play a significant part in all of these times. Botanical dyeing can preserve your treasured bouquet – and talented textile artist Karen Williamson of Nuku has come up with a lovely personalised silk scarf keepsake infused with the unique patterns and colours of your own flowers. You provide the bouquet(s) to be used as the dye source for a luscious eco-dyed Nuku silk scarf, and you’ll receive in return something, beautiful, eco-friendly and special to wear while holding those memories close.

Anyone can take part – it’s your chance to share in creativity and togetherness online through inspiring videos, tutorials, conversations, and of course, through the soothing act of drinking tea out of a thoughtfully handmade cup.
