Evening Silk Shawls, Wraps and Scarves. Hand Dyed Silk, Hand Painted Silk One of a Kind Original Artisan Handmade Creations by Jossiani.

I am Jossiani, artist, artisan and silk designer. I create original unique hand dyed and hand painted natural silk shawls wraps scarves, all handmade silk creations using 100% high quality real pure natural mulberry silk. I do "watercolor" on silk using permanent silk dyes. I make one of a kind tie dye and Shibori fiber art.

I also create solid color individually hand dyed shawls for weddings, bridal unique gifts and silk fashion accessories. On of a kind art to wear silk couture. I work alone and have done so for the last two decades.

I am located in South California. I am close to the beautiful Pacific Ocean. The beach, the sand, the different bird species, the Ocean creatures, the tides, the rocks, the many shapes of waves inspire many of my designs.

Imagining colors and color combination triggers my inspiration for new creations. I have several ongoing series based on colors for all my hand painted silk creations: "OCEAN" with all sorts of blues and greens , "ANTIQUE ITALY", "IVORY AND IRON" series, "PRINTEMPS" series, "FIESTA", etc.

About my silk line: Please note that I cut and sew my solid black silks items and some of my solid dark brown silks with pre-dyed bought natural silk by the yard. With all my years of silk dyeing experience I never managed to create a deep black or a true solid color deep dark brown so my black silks and brown silks are not hand dyed. My items created with store bought pre vat-dyed silks are of course less expensive because there is less time involved in their creation and hand making.

I hand dye all other solid silk colors that are medium, light and pastel colors. If the unique item is individually hand dyed it is also more expensive to create.

I am working on new silk creations with a different technique of hand painting. So my new silk creations are in that new shop:

I also have a shop on Etsy where I sell different collectibles and supplies I changed my mind on and decided not to use:
