“The Ultimate Wedding Heirloom” ……… at last a stunning wedding keepsake made from your very own wedding flowers. Your beautiful scarves or wraps will be 100% natural, bespoke pieces with every single detail being hand crafted.
After a chance meeting in 2013 with established Byron Bay artist Anne Leon, the House of Ferguson creators, Pip Rooke and Jane Soutter, took a special interest in one of Anne’s stunning plant dyeing techniques and The Wedding Scarf was born.
The total brilliance
behind this concept is that your very own wedding flowers and foliage are plant
dyed onto the finest pure silk satin, pure merino and pashmina fabrics creating exquisite heirloom scarves and permanent memories of the most magical day of your life.
Your beautiful scarves or wraps will be 100% natural, bespoke pieces with every single detail being hand crafted. We can produce several scarves from one wedding bouquet or from a selection of flowers from your special day. The result is a unique heirloom that is truly personal to you and a piece that you and your bridal party can cherish and hand down from generation to generation.
House of Ferguson was born to cherish and nurture this product into the market place, ultimately delivering the exquisite finished heirloom safely into the waiting hands of the discerning purchaser – whether they be Groom, Bridesmaid, Mother, Mother-in law and, of course, the all important Bride.
This gift of pure delight, wrapped in memories, will honour a special day and last many lifetimes.
What is the concept or your inspiration for these beautiful scarves?
So much of weddings is ephemeral, by the end of the day it has all gone with the event captured only in memory, pictures and sometimes video. I wanted to offer something that truly captured the special essence of “The Day”, to be cherished and passed down over generations. Flowers, typically, have a limited life so, as I have been experimenting with plant-dyeing for many years, I wondered if I could combine that ancient art with an innovative approach to produce something timeless and precious.
If a bride wants to get a series of heirloom scarves created, what does it involve?
Up to five scarves or wraps can be made from an average sized wedding bouquet. Extra flowers can be gathered from the rest of the bridal party or table flowers used to make additional scarves or wraps.
What happens to my bouquet when it arrives at your studio?
Your wedding bouquet is couriered to my studio where I carefully deconstruct the flowers and leaves onto the bride’s fabric of choice then the process on print making begins.
What fabrics or materials do you print on?
We are using the very finest pure silk satin, wool & pashmina.
