This is Australian Munjina Stone found exclusively (at a secret location) in the Chichester range of hills 800 miles north of Perth, and was laid down about 2,700 million years ago originally as mud - yes, mud.
All Munjina Stone has a reddy colour, and a banded structure making it, we think, one of the most beautiful lesser known minerals.
It has certainly proved very popular as a scarf, so we're sure it will as a tyon accessory that adds a whole fresh and attractive dimension to any outfit - whether going out for a meal, a walk, or on holiday.
You can tie them around your head as a bandana, hold a pony tail in place, knot them around your neck, wrap them around your wrist, hang them from a belt, and tie them onto a tote, handbag or luggage. The list goes on.
They are 85% modal (a natural product made from beech tree resin) and 15% silk, so are lightweight and 'floaty', look and feel silky, yet have a comforting texture and warmth.
We're thoroughly pleased with the fabric mix, and are confident you will be too.
But please note, these are one metre long and 40 cms wide (a few inches over 3 feet by one foot in old money), so are an excellently flexible size, but are not 'big'.
