The silk mill shop I frequent has been weaving in Sudbury, England since the 19th century and was founded by French Huguenots in London during the 18th century. I've shopped in fabric stores in many places (NYC, LA, SF, Germany, Switzerland, London and beyond) and have not yet found more stunning silks and doubt that these can be surpassed in quality and beauty.

As for me, my name's Dan and I'm the one-man operation behind 'VaVa'. I source my fabrics in person from a local silk mill, orderi all the supplies, do all the sewing, finishing,…

The silk mill shop I frequent has been weaving in Sudbury, England since the 19th century and was founded by French Huguenots in London during the 18th century. I've shopped in fabric stores in many places (NYC, LA, SF, Germany, Switzerland, London and beyond) and have not yet found more stunning silks and doubt that these can be surpassed in quality and beauty.

As for me, my name's Dan and I'm the one-man operation behind 'VaVa'. I source my fabrics in person from a local silk mill, orderi all the supplies, do all the sewing, finishing, pressing, packaging and shipping. It's more than a full-time operation, but I love what I do and have a passion for these beautiful silks and for exciting mens neckwear.

When I'm not ensconced behind the sewing machine, I'm also an avid knitter - you can find me over on Ravelry as Purpledan, hanging out with the Wollmeise yarn fans.

I was born and raised in England, then, thanks to having dual-citizenship, I spent 14 years living in San Francisco, one of the most amazing places on earth. I'm now based back in the English countryside whilst I focus on 'VaVa'.

In addition to this shop, I also have a shop where I destash fabrics and also sell OOAK-Barbie-related items:
