Handpainted Silk Scarves with an Ethnic Flair from Wearable Art by Heather on Etsy

Today, I ran across these lovely silk scarves on Etsy by a New Hampshire artist. I was especially taken by her ethnic batik designs. Here is a bit about the artist edited from her profile:
Heather was born in Southern Africa and grew up in a small town called Bulawayo in Zimbabwe. All of her life she had the privilege of being surrounded by artists and musicians infusing the flavor of Africa into her three decades as a textile designer. These influences are woven into the color and design of each scarf so that it truly evolves into a one-of-a-kind creation of wearable art.
