Announcement   SALE - 15% discount when you buy 2 or more items! Discount appears once you have 2 items in your cart!

My 3D-Fractal and Procedural-designed scarves are made from the finest silk satin and silk chiffon. My scarves and accessories make unusual and thoughtful gifts. Seen up close, they are filled with amazing detail and are very beautiful. All items arrive elegantly gift-boxed.

I'm working on new items all the time, many of which are in the "Made to Order" section. Feel free to ask about anything you see there, for more photos of any item, or about wholesale orders.

From time to time, I test new designs on polyester, and my test is your gain: these test scarves are offered at reduced prices. There are usually only a few available: search for "polyester" to see what I have on hand now.

About

Wearable Mathematical Art by Ellen Meiselman.

I really love seeing my digital, algorithmically generated designs come to life on silk. The folding and translucent quality of the silk adds a random element that creates an infinite variety from each design.

My images are created through experimentation with fractals or procedural tools. I tend to focus on very organic or natural shapes. New designs will be showing up frequently, so check back often as I grow my library of scarves.

I work closely with my printer who maintains excellent standards and matches my colors precisely, even on chiffon. I use a very high quality Chinese silk. It feels wonderful, and drapes beautifully.

Returns and exchange details
Return shipping cost is the buyer's responsibility.

If for any reason you wish to return an item, contact me within 14 days after receipt of the goods. Then ship the item back to me to arrive within 30 days of receipt. Shipping it back need not be expensive because you do not have to include the gift box. Simply seal the item in a clean plastic bag, and put the bag in a padded envelope - you can reuse the one it was shipped to you in.

Send it back to me, preferably with tracking. Send me the tracking number once you have sent it back. You will receive a refund for the full price of the item as soon as it makes its way back to me in original condition. I do not refund shipping costs, as those are out-of-pocket costs for me.
Payment

Please, make the payment directly after ordering. Items will be shipped after your payment has cleared.

Custom orders must be paid for in advance.

Customs and import taxes
Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. I'm not responsible for delays due to customs.

Multiple items:
you will NOT have to pay the same shipping on each item going to the same address. I will immediately refund any overage in shipping costs. Convo me if you have any questions about shipping!

Processing times:
There are times when I may list 1-2 weeks because I am very busy but your item may actually take much less time to ship. If you really want something right away, convo me before ordering and ask if it is possible.

Rush orders:
Most of the time I can ship within 1-3 days. However, items marked "Made to Order" and Custom Orders cannot be rushed beyond about 8 weeks, and delivery on a certain date cannot be guaranteed. Convo me with questions about made to order items.
