Suzanne Bates' Profile

About

Hi, I'm Suzanne, the artist creating Oh Suzanni scarves. I'm a graphic designer, fiber artist, and lover of color, pattern and ethnic textiles.

Every textile in my shop is made solely by me in my studio. I am driven to using direct hand dyeing methods that enliven my senses. From the glorious touch of the fine silks I begin with, to the carving of wood patterns to create the resist patterns, to the smell of the dyes as they fuse with the fabric, these are the sensory qualities that bring joy into my work.

My work is primarily on silk, but linen, rayon, velvet, cotton, and even paper, all make their way into my dye bath.

If you would like to read more about my dyeing process or view additional work, please visit my gallery page at: http://www.ohsuzanni.com…
