Announcement   Welcome to Fire Aunt Studios! Everything you see is created by me, one at a time, in my home studio in Boise, Idaho. These are not your run of the mill tie dyed scarves - my scarves are rich silks and velvets, and funky rayons, created individually and thoughtfully with wearable, seasonal, and current colors in mind, using a variety of techniques.

I invite you to look through my sold items. Most of my designs are one of a kind, however, if you see something you like, please don't hesitate to message me to see if we can come up with a reasonable facsimile.

Please read my shop policies and message me with any questions. Happy shopping, and please look for us on Facebook and Instagram (@fireauntstudios).

About

Hand dyed scarves in current, wearable colors and styles, produced one at a time in my home studio.

Fire Aunt Studios got its name after a vacation with my nephew in Texas (fire ant central - the biting kind) where I got the worst sunburn of my life. We joked that I was the Fire Aunt, and the name took off from there.

I have been experimenting with different types of hand-dyeing for over a decade, including tie dye and low water immersion techniques, as well as combinations of different techniques. I never get tired of seeing how the colors migrate and blend depending on the fabric, the technique, and even the dye itself.

In real life, I work at my local animal shelter. I also donate my time to a local rescue group, providing rescue transport for dogs who need rides to new homes, rescue groups, etc.

If you'd like to see more samples of my work, please follow me on Instagram @fireauntstudios and on Facebook.

    Owner

    I have been experimenting with different techniques of dyeing fabric for nearly 16 years. I never get tired of seeing the play of color on fabric. I love working with my customers to create their vision!

    Merlin McLovin joined Fire.Aunt Studios in November of 2013, upon his adoption from the Idaho Humane Society. A corgi-of-all-trades, Merlin is never far from my side, ready to help out ... or just herding me around the studio, keeping me on task.

    Critic

    Shadow, also called Monsieur thanks to his imperious attitude, primarily acts as a shop critic, because, you know, CATS. In this photo, he is seen questioning my obviously sketchy judgement while I was attempting to take listing photos for the shop.

Shipping
Processing times are indicated in each listing. I'll do my best to meet these shipping estimates, but cannot guarantee them. Actual delivery time will depend on the shipping method you choose.

Currently I'm shipping to the US, and selected countries. Shipping within the U.S. is via Priority Flat Rate shipping.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: I am currently shipping to selected countries, however, if your country isn't listed, please don't hesitate to contact me for shipping costs. I have chosen to ship via First Class International to keep your costs down. however, if you'd rather have your items shipped by Priority International, let me know before you purchase and I will change the listing to reflect the upgraded shipping cost. *Please note* International shipping costs are estimated and MAY actually be lower than indicated. If the difference is $2.00 or more in your favor, I will refund the difference.

Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. I'm not responsible for delays due to customs.
