Every one of my scarves are originals. You can be sure you will be the only person in the universe wearing the scarf you buy! no mass-production, no factories.... There will be variations in each one- that's what makes them one-of-a-kind & is the beauty of the handmade process. If the scarf has a slight imperfection, please remember to enjoy an artist's hand. All sizes are approximate.

Silk Scarves are perfect for traveling. One of my customers goes to France every year & takes a few pieces of black clothing & a lot of different scarves- Voila! Also, silk is warm in winter, cool in summer. It is sturdy yet delicate, resilient, lustrous, alive.

Beautiful colors and gorgeous, very detailed artwork. The scarf was shorter than I would have liked (measurements in the listing were accurate, so I should have read more carefully), so I won't be able to wear it the way I had hoped to. Still, I would not hesitate to buy from this shop again!

About

Mother, Partner, Artist, Aspiring cloud watcher, Mariner...

Supported in all ways by Paul who is the nicest person I know and two beautiful growing girls (who help with designs for me to paint when I run out of ideas...)

My background is in printmaking (graphic arts) & arboriculture (the study of trees). My work is influenced by both- I love drawing as much as I love painting with vibrant colors on lustrous silk.

I paint from nature: trees, birds, plants, bees, butterflies and ladybugs, animals & occasionally something that pops up from who knows where in my head...

I aspire to be more lazy, watching clouds & sipping tea. Maybe I will get there some time.....

Additional policies and FAQs
C A R E of your Scarf
No need to dryclean. Wash gently in cool water with mild soap & rinse. Pat dry with a towel & hang to dry. To iron, place under a clean cloth & use the lowest steam setting, or iron while damp.

C A R E of your Shibori or pleated silk SHAWL:
Wash gently in cool water with mild soap & rinse. Pat dry with a towel. To re-ruffle after washing, or if the wrinkles have started to drop out: wind the scarf lengthwise into a tight coil & leave to dry. For a tight, scrunched look, let it dry completely. For more open & softer pleats, open it up while still slightly damp & hang it to finish drying.

If you are traveling & it is wrinkled, hang it in a moist place (bathroom during a shower?) & the wrinkles should drop out.

Oil spots? I just tried this- it is amazing! Sprinkle some cornstarch on the stain, leave 20 minutes, brush off. Repeat as necessary.

Desperate measures for stubborn grease spots- a bit of Dawn dish detergent, foamed & lightly rubbed into spot. Rinse, repeat.

I accept some custom work- please send me an email with what you have in mind!

I use non-toxic, permanent and lightfast dyes on my silk pieces. The scarves will not fade or bleed. If displayed, they should be kept out of direct sunlight to avoid damage to the silk fabric. North-facing or indirect light is fine.
