Filges Vibrant Play Silks are playsilks in 6 beautiful and bright, powerful hues. They are bigger than the Filges Seasonal Playsilks offering more opportunities for play.
They are light, flowing silk squares for open-ended play. A staple in Waldorf classrooms and anywhere natural play with non-toxic, beautiful "toys" are important.

- Perfect for dress-up as a fairy, dragon, sunbeam, fish, wind, flower...
- Creating landscapes for play with elves and gnomes
- Nature table displays to celebrate the seasons
- Make a sling for a doll or animal
- Gift wrap (just like the Japanese "furoshiki")
- A cozy, soft sheet for sleeping
- A curtain where beautiful light shines through and colours glow
