Horoscope Constellation Tapestries (Large)

Horoscope Constellation Tapestries (Large)


Starry, starry night - a delicate horoscope constellation hoop, dyed with plant-based indigo and embroidered with twinkling beads and sequins with hand painted details, perfect for a unique baby shower or birthday gift.

Lightweight felt of tulle and merino wool is carefully lowered into a natural indigo vat and worked gently while being kept submerged for 10 minutes at a time. The felt first emerges a brilliant yellow-green and turns gradually into a beautiful blue as the air kisses it. This process of dipping and oxidising is repeated 3 to 4 times, building the colour up layer by layer, to dye the felt a deep, rich midnight blue for each constellation hoop.
Once set into their bamboo hoops, a sprinkling of white acrylic paint sets the backdrop for a starry night sky. Clusters of Japanese glass beads and sequins are embroidered to form stars while delicate silver threads outline the silhouette of each constellation.
Surprise your favourite stargazer with these hoops to add to their gallery wall or feature shelf.

Approx. 6¾” (17cm) in diameter.
Also available in a different size here.
