Welcome! I'm Cassandra Tondro, and I create art and artful gifts using repurposed, upcycled and natural materials.
You can see my leaf print silk scarves on this page, and other gift items by hovering over the GIFTS tab at the top of this page.
My leaf print scarves are created using fallen leaves that I gather on neighborhood walks. The leaves are pressed and rolled against the silk, and the bundle is steamed over boiling water. When the scarves are unrolled, the leaves are removed, and the colors and patterns of the leaves have transferred to the fabric. No inks, dyes or paints are used -- just the colors from the leaves themselves. The leaf prints are permanent, and the scarves can be hand washed using a mild soap.
