Announcement   Hand dyed neckties and scarves, OOAK with asymmetrical patterns. Adding a tie or scarf brings attention to the face, and changes the look of basic clothing. These plant dyed eco friendly, silk neckties and scarves are made with a high quality silk. " First impressions count. Like it or not, within the first five seconds of seeing you, people make their first impressions . . .people judge you by your appearance and they correlate that or relate that directly to your attitude, potentially your work ethic and ultimately your personality: " This is a quote i picked up from Crain's Chicago Business by a custom clothing maker.
The ties are 19mm and the scarves are between 16 and 19mm, with the exception of the silk gauze shawl which is light and ethereal. They are all soft and luxurious. The neckties and scarves have random patterns that are eye catching, sometimes showing the print of the leaf or petal that created the subtle color blends. Colors are locked using vinegar, steel and copper. The plants come from my yard, and are grown organically.
Dyeing fabric from plants is ancient. I use plants that I have available in Northern Illinois, and only use safe to handle plants and metals. These silks are truly one of a kind items. The colors and patterns are heat locked into the fabric, no bleeding when hand washed. Even if I do two at a time, the same way, they will have variation from the plants. My plant materials are recycled through the compost pile. Shipping for silks is first class mail, for the U.S. For other countries or for priority mail please send me a convo and I will make the adjustment.

The blank note cards are prints from my paintings, mostly from my own photographs. If you want multiple sets of cards, or special card mixes, please send a convo and I will list it for you. I check my email every morning. Shipping is First Class Mail for the U.S. If you want international shipping let me know and I will look up the current rates, I use Priority Mail for international shipping.

Should you wish to return an item it must be unworn/unused and returned in its original packaging with postage paid by the purchaser.

Isaiah 60:19 The sun shall be no more your light by day, nor for brightness shall the moon give light to you by night, but the Lord will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your glory.

I ordered this as a Christmas present just a few days before and was worried it would not make it on time - Cheryl shipped it out right away and I got it just in time! On top of that, it came nicely gift wrapped - a very sweet touch. The scarf is beautiful and exactly as pictured - looking forward to purchasing more!

About

Never Stop Learning

Dying fabric with plant material is something I learned in a short 1 hour class, I have done lots of experimenting,read a few books, and searched the internet to develop the means and methods I use now. Everything I use is safe to handle, and therefore safe to wear. I work on dying during the warm weather months here in Northern Illinois. I keep trying new methods and plants, i still have lots to learn. This summer I have planted some dye plants that are supposed to be able to grow in this region.

Thank you for visiting my shop. The silk garments are colored using plants as the color source. Most of the plants come from my organic garden and go to the compost pile when I am done. The natural colors are more subtle than commercial dyes and have a depth, pattern and variance created by the mix of plant material. Everything has been hand washed in Woolite after the dye process, and that is what we recommend for care. Hand wash in Woolite, and wrap in a towel to dry. You can do touch ups with an iron set on silk. Do not dry clean.
