The scarf I purchased was more beautiful in person than even the picture could have captured! And it was shipped so fast I couldn't believe it. To top it off it was wrapped beautifully with a personal note to me. I highly recommend earthsilks. Such gorgeous work!

About

Magical One-of-a-Kind Pieces

I lovingly hand-dye silk with plants, flowers, spices and earth. Sometimes I use different metals and objects to create and modify patterns. I value the health of our planet and never use chemical dyes or mordants.

I was a graphic designer in Madison, Wisconsin for many years and though graphic design can be creative I missed the mystery that unfolds when playing with paint and other mediums. The dying process encourages a playfulness that feeds my soul. The lack of chemicals in my process feeds my spirit.

The plant world inspires and nurtures me. I love observing and working with plants, and have always been in awe of the colors that nature graces us with. To transfer these colors onto fabric without using chemicals that harm the earth is a gift that I’m excited to share.

I love the unpredictability that each piece presents. Each scarf or garment is a new adventure, and as the colors and patterns unfold, I await with anticipation as I unveil and discover the beauty found within each unique piece.

Each piece tells its own story. Even when using the same plants, the results vary. I have come to believe that the minerals in the soil that each plant grows in will affect the color that arises in the final product.

I started making scarves for fun and as gifts. I have always appreciated handmade things: the time, effort, creativity and care that they embody. This natural dyeing process creates whimsical one-of-a-kind pieces and the unveiling is truly magical. I feel fortunate to be able to produce something of beauty that others appreciate.

Thank you for visiting my shop!
