International Customers: Although international shipping time has improved since this summer, I'm now seeing wait-times from one week to a month while packages wait for a flight to the destination. International shipments usually arrive promptly but sometimes it still takes weeks or occasionally even months longer than it used to. The good news is that things very rarely get entirely lost. But there is very little I can do to speed up a shipment that is taking longer than usual, so I must ask customers for a lot more patience than usual. Ask me about a free e-card service I offer if your order will arrive late.

About ScarvesByEllen

Sales 2,575
On Etsy since 2014

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.

Customs and import taxes
Non-US customers: Import taxes, duties and related customs fees may be charged once your order arrives to its final destination, which are determined by your local customs office. Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. They are NOT paid by this shop.

Please do not ask us to change the value on the customs form to avoid the fees. Simply put, we will not do this.

Payment of these charges and taxes are your responsibility and will not be covered by us. We are not responsible for delays caused by the customs department in your country. For further details of charges, please contact your local customs office. There are many customs and duty calculators online that will give you an estimate of the fees but they may not be completely accurate.

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.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Custom Orders: I do take select custom orders. Custom printing takes 6-8 weeks. I cannot print YOUR designs or third-party designs because of copyright issues.

Sizing details

The size of each item is listed in the description. Scroll down until you see the tiny words "Read Item Description".

Is this item Silk or Satin?

Most of my items are 100% pure silk. Satin is a type of weave, not a type of fabric. Silk Satin is a satin-weave silk, which has a smooth sheen on one side and a crepe or matte finish on the other.
The fabric is always listed in each item's description. Scroll down the item page until you see the tiny words "Read Item Description" or "Learn More about this Item" depending on your device.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I do not provide gift wrapping, but each order comes in an elegant gift box, ready for presentation. There is a picture of the gift box as the last photo in each item listing
