Ironbark is a common name of a number of species within the genus Eucalyptus that have dark, deeply furrowed bark. Instead of being shed annually, the dead bark accumulates on the trees, forming the fissures. The bark is resistant to fire and heat and protects the living tissue within the trunk and branches from fire.
Whilst the ironbark tree might be tough and hardy, our 'Ironbark' Raw Silk Jacket is soft and light. The rich contrast of the silk threads create the effect of the fissures of the ironbark, whilst the blue & tan hues lend the jacket a great diversity in its wardrobe repertoire.
