This Australian Designer Uses Flowers to Dye Her Silk Hair Accessories and We’re Obsessed
Silk hair accessories are one trend that isn’t going anywhere. Not only are they aesthetically pleasing but silk is extremely gentle on your hair so you don’t have to deal with tugging or catching on your locks. There are a number of silk hair accessories on the market but one brand we’re particularly obsessed with is designer Eloïse Panetta.
Based in Sydney, Eloïse Panetta is a luxury womenswear label that produces bespoke clothing and silk accessories. In fact, Panetta, the person, uses Australian botanicals to dye her pieces including eucalyptus leaves and rose petals.
“Each piece of silk goes through a beautiful botanical dyeing process,” reads the Eloïse Panetta website. “Australian botanicals such as eucalyptus leaves, flower petals and berries are wrapped in the silk and then steamed, creating soft, subtle colours and unique patterns.”
The range of accessories, which includes ribbons, scrunchies, headbands and scarves, are all made from 100 percent silk and thanks to the natural dyeing process, are also 100 percent chemical-free and are sustainably made in Sydney. Here are a few of our favourite accessories:
