Mother & Daughter bring Fiber Art & Fashion Talents into Original Designs

Louise Silk, a fiber artist for over 40 years, raised Sarah Silk with a love of all things fiber. Together, we began designing clothes & bags to fit our artistic lifestyles. Leftover t-shirts from Louise’s memory quilt commissions became Sarah’s dream shrug. Family’s members’ old jeans became our favorite purses. Requests rolled in. A business was born. Our process includes deconstructing & reworking denim into transformed pieces focusing on style & function. All pieces are individually made by us in our studio in Pittsburgh, PA.

We work in a 2700 sq. ft. loft in Pittsburgh’s Southside, an urban setting of hills, row houses, a river, industrial buildings, & an historic main street. Pgh is a city that reflects the ethos of SilkDenim; something with a rich past deserves a future, which can only be achieved through love, effort, imagination, & community mindedness. SilkDenim believes the art of sustainable craft is like the renewing of communities – absolutely necessary for a successful American future. The loft space itself is an inspirational home & work space that invites warmth & creativity. If you're in town, please call us to schedule a studio visit!
