Why silk? You may find yourself thinking you can live without the luxury of a silk scarf or tie. You may think, those are for those elite folks who have extra money to spend. You may think, if only I knew how to tie a silk scarf!

Well, my friend you are in the right spot.

1. Silk is a material that lives, and breathes. Unlike some cheap scarf you may spend a few bucks on silk will last, when cared for properly. Like any relationship with a living thing- silk is in this for the LONG haul.

2. Silk is for everyone. It has a vivacity and luxuriousness unlike any other natural material and it makes you feel happier just having it near you, with its gentle caress on your skin.

3. Wearing and tying silk is an adventure just beginning and with a few helpful tips, a few online videos and you will be wearing your silk accessory like a pro!

Bright silk scarves and colorful neckties are just what you need to add a touch of luxury and class to your wardrobe!

About

Silent Colors, Voice their Songs

Seven years ago a friend gave me the chance to paint on silk.

When I got married to a Latvian man we were living on a tight budget and so I decided hand painted silk accessories would be a nice gift to give to friends. So I began painting, and it wasn't long until people started asking to buy my scarves.

When our first child was born I began painting while he napped, this continues with the next two kids and is my source of finding a bit of quiet solitude and calm for myself.

Painting silk is something silent I can do while my children nap, it doesn't disturb their sleep and when I put on my headphones and turn on some music I can enter into my own little realm of peace. Let's face it, all Mom's need a little quiet time in the years when their kids are all 4 and under :)

When I paint I let my imagination soar with the music, and the colors begin to come alive and bold in this symphony of silent music flowing from my brush.

Welcome to "Silkiness".

You can also find my work on my website : www.ritzysilk.com

Each of my handpainted creations is intended to spoil you with a little bit of the luxury of silk. Indulge yourself or a friend with the luscious feeling of silk by choosing one of the many varieties of silk scarves I have to offer.

Each item is made from 100% silk and painted with water based colors. When the creation is complete the colors are set by ironing and then rinsed to remove any residue.

The art of silk painting is something that can be guided, but not controlled and therefore each so called "mistake" is a detail to add to the uniqueness of the finished item. These details are what makes each item truly one of a kind.

If you have trouble checking out see this helpful guide.
