I started belly dancing before I started my veil dyeing business. I wanted my dance name to represent my style, and who I was as a dancer, and how I express myself thru my dance....exotic and full of mystery! I always incorporate mystery into my dance with an exotic flare, thus is the way I see deserts...always exotic and mysterious! I have been captivated by sunsets, and the sky as long as I can remember. I am a HUGE sky person, which is where alot of my inspiration for dance and dyeing veils come from!

Each veil or set of veils is a unique hand dyed work of art. No two veils or set of veils ever come out exactly alike. They are not mass produced.

About

Dyeing silk is a journey, but not a destination..

I have always had a passion for dancing and making/creating things since a young girl. I created choreographies to 80's dance music from movies, and would put on shows with my friends for our neighbors. I also enjoyed making things and doing projects throughout the years during my childhood. I took dance lessons for several years, and later on became interested in belly dance.
Shortly after getting into belly dance, I went on a missions trip to help inner city children at a summer camp. I was the arts and crafts leader, and decided to have the children do tie-dye bandanas, which would be fun and colorful, without knowing how each bandana would turn out. It was after returning from my trip, that my love for color grew, and decided to dye silk veils for dancers. Silks by Sahariah was born, and my inspiration for color exploded! My inspiration for color comes mostly from the sky, the moon, clouds and sunsets! I am such a HUGE sky person and am so mesmerized by it! I also love deserts and Middle Eastern textiles and colors! I am also inspired by other exotic lands, heavy metal music, styles of different eras, fantasy art, nature, weather, the four seasons, and the elements. When I chose my dance name I wanted it to mean something to me, and for it to reflect my dancing and silk work. It had to be exotic, and part of who I am as a dancer and an artist. My dancing, as well as my silk work is full of mystery with an exotic flare. Each veil that is created has a story to tell, and speaks to it's beholder! My silk works include rectangle veils, half circle veils (in 2 different weights), jagged edged half circle veils, 35x84 rectangle veil poi sets, 5mm and 8mmm half circle veil poi sets and FANtasy veils, which are also all available in glow in black light colors. I have also made charmeuse silk tank tops, scarves, Silk Hips (fringed hip scarves), and pirate sashes. Til this day, my love for creating only continues on this Wonderful journey...

WELCOME!! Thanks for stopping by! Please read before making your purchase! Questions about an item? Please ask!

As a camel has a long journey across the desert to reach it's destination, dyeing silk is also a journey, but not a destination!

Payment
I accept pay pal, pay pal E-checks and money orders.. Money Orders are accepted ONLY if you are in the US. The money order must be sent promptly, and the item will not be shipped until payment in full is received. However, for International orders, if you do not have a pay pal account, you can pay for your item through Western Union, as long as payment is sent promptly. Again, orders will not be shipped until payment in full is received.

All items will be shipped once payment is received and cleared. For all pay pal orders, payment within three days is greatly appreciated!

For custom orders half of entire payment is required up front before I start your order, and to secure your slot . Custom orders are on a first come first served basis.
Shipping
****PLEASE make sure your address is correct in your paypal account!!! I am not responsible for shipping items to a wrong address!! Please make sure your proper address is provided for me to ship your items!! I want you to get your LOVELY silks!! :):) I usually go to the post office most days of the week, depending on if I am able to get to the post office in time, the same day you purchase an item. If not, it will be shipped the next business day. If the post office is closed for a holiday, then your item will be shipped the next business day.

**All items are shipped by USPS First Class Mail, First Class Mail International Registered Mail, and Priority Mail once payment of the item is received. Items shipped within the US are shipped First Class Mail with Insurance, and Priority Mail with insurance for secured shipping, which is why my s&h cost more. I also cannot risk higher valued items getting lost, etc...so you are paying for SECURE shipping and handling methods.
For International buyers, First Class Mail International Registered Mail is the most inexpensive, secure method of shipping I have researched! I have had too many items in the past get lost because of unsecure and uninsured shipping methods! This is why my shipping and handling cost is more, because you are paying for a more secure and insured method! This ensures that you will get your package! **PLEASE NOTE: It does take 6-10 business days or MORE to receive your package, depending on customs!! I have not had any problems with packages getting lost since then! International buyers also MUST be prepared to pay their country's customs fees and taxes. I have nothing to do with customs whatsoever, and cannot put a "lower" value on my items on the customs form. Doing so, can get me into trouble and risking my items getting lost. More of this is explained in my listings description.
Refunds and Exchanges
There are NO returns on silk items. PLEASE make sure you READ the entire listing carefully! I describe my items as accurately as possible, and provide several photos for you to view. If you have any questions, Please do not hesitate to ask!
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders are based on a first come first served basis. I must be allowed enough time to create and complete your requests. International buyers, PLEASE contact me at least 2 months in advance if you are needing a large order, or something by a certain date/month. Please also keep in mind of the time I will need to complete your order and to allow for ample shipping time! All custom orders require a deposit up front. I am always willing to work with my clients throughout the whole custom order process with updates!
Please realise that an idea or vision you may have for a veil(s) to come out a certain way, will more than likely not turn out as you have envisioned, because of dyes running/blending on silk, etc. Each veil or set is uniquely hand dyed and no two ever come out exact. Dyes always run and blend forming other colors and/or designs!

PLEASE do NOT send my photos to other artists' asking them to duplicate my work, they will not come out exactly like mine because of techniques, etc,...and PLEASE do NOT send me photos of other artists' work, asking me to duplicate their work, as I cannot, and I must respect the work of others'. I have PLENTY of my own color combos in fire colors, and other combos for you to choose from, and am willing to work with you to achieve the color combos, shades, gradations, etc. to your heart's content!! THANK YOU in advance :);)

Unfortunately, as the prices of silk and supplies go up from my suppliers and shipping costs, etc. I have to raise my price as well, on my products in order to make a decent profit to live on to make my business worthwhile, as I am a small, one person business. I do all the prep work of cutting, treating, dyeing, pressing, assembling and photographing the silks. And of course, pressing and packaging them for shipment.

I value my time and efforts to make you a quality product that will last for a long time to come. My products are very time intensive to make, to ensure you receive a quality product that will last a lifetime! I pay very close attention to detail from my dyed work to the assembling of my veil poi sets and FANtasy veils. Alot of that involves, redyeing the silks more than once and reinforcing the FANtasy veils. This is why my prices go up, the cost of supplies and from all the work and time that goes into each piece to ensure you will get a quality product that you will enjoy for years to come :) I hope you enjoy your product for years to come as much as I enjoy creating them for you :)
