Announcement   I love dyeing and painting silk! All scarves are one of a kind, hand dyed and painted by me, Susan Corbin - you will find various sizes and shapes, including smaller infinities, large scarves in chiffon and habotai silk as well as other simple wraps / sarongs now and then.

I enjoy just playing with colour using shibori, clamp dye and direct application, but my favorite technique is painting on the silk. I may repeat a motif such as a leaf shape, but each scarf is painted freely with no stencils or printing media, so each one is unique. I dye many of the scarves first in small batches and mix my own colours, so background colours vary and are sometimes not exactly repeatable.

I paint on top of the dyed silk, or around a resist pattern. Sometimes I add touches of metallic which will show in the pictures and descriptions. All dyes and paints are specially formulated for silk so they leave the fabric soft and wearable, and are completely washable by hand.

All scarves have a signature mark and come with care instructions.

Silk is such a joy to wear and something you can enjoy for years to come! They also make a very special 'pampering' gift. I hope you will enjoy browsing through my creations!

Payment
Please pay for your item within three days. Email me right away if you have any special requests etc. I take paypal only.
Shipping
I ship by Canada Post expedited. This will go by air internationally and in Canada. Most scarves can ship in a padded envelope and so are not expensive to ship by letter air mail. However this does not include tracking. There is however, a shipping upgrade available if you prefer to pay for tracking. When you checkout, there should be a down arrow by the 'standard shipping' box - click and you will see an amount for shipping with tracking.

Most of my scarves are already made, so I can ship out within 1-2 business days. However, a few styles are pictures of previously sold scarves whose colours and styles can be more or less repeated. (This is mentioned in the listing.) These can take up to 7 days to post.

Once I have posted an item, shipping times vary - anywhere on the east coast of Canada and the U.S. should take up to a week. Further west may take a week to 10 days. Internationally can take up to two weeks.
Refunds and Exchanges
Refunds will be taken if I am notified within 7 days of your recieval of the item. The refund will be given once the item is returned and will be minus shipping costs.
