About

Addicted to color!

Pure silk is irresistible; soft, lightweight, strong, and with that incredible sheen. Combine that with fabulous color and you can't go wrong!

I dye each piece personally by painting it with acid dyes blended into unique colors. I use various techniques for different effects, including shibori style resists, applying liquid resists, marbling, and scattering salt on wet dye. One of the things I love about this medium is just watching how colors move and blend together. The unexpected results aren't always pretty, but sometimes they are magical!

If you see a design you like but have different colors in mind, just contact me about doing a custom order.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

100% silk scarves are surprisingly durable, but I recommend hand washing, hang until almost dry, then iron while still damp. Dry cleaning is fine too.
