Sarah's Silks Mini Playsilks Summer
Sarah's Silks Mini Playsilks Summer from Oskar's Wooden Ark are perfect for creative and open-ended play. They are light, yet strong and the edges of each playsilk are hand-hemmed. All playsilks are color-fast and hand washable. They can be even ironed on a medium setting.
It is amazing to see what children create with them: Some children make costumes like capes, skirts, pants, hats, veils, animal tails and more. The next day the same silks become green grass for their toy animals to live on, blue water to sail the boats, or a rainbow can appear in the sky above them. Many children wrap their dolls in them or tie them on as a sling to carry a favorite animal or doll around in. They can be used to build forts with the sofa cushions, for a puppet show curtain, and for magic tricks. The possibilities are as unlimited as your child's imagination.
The Summer Collection is inspired by abstract artist, Joan Mitchell. Rich hues present in the natural world printed on heavyweight silk makes this limited-edition capsule one of a kind!
