Silkworth's Shop Announcement

Silkworth is a place where colors speak all languages. We specialize in beautiful silks, that are mindfully painted, using a technique that has been handed down for generations. Each scarf, purse and accessory is unique and due to the nature of the dyes that bond with the silk, they are almost impossible to duplicate. People have an innate love of beauty and beautiful things. I strive to create paintings that are authentic works of wearable art for you to treasure.

Silkworth's Shop Policies


Silkworth is a shop dedicated to the fine art of painting on silk. All of my items are made by me here in New York's Hudson River Valley. Due to the way the dyes and paints react with the silk I use, it is virtually impossible to duplicate a piece except with a general color scheme. For this reason I am not able to do custom orders, so I try to keep my shop updated with new items that will appeal to many different people. With proper care, all of my scarves and purses should last for many years. I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoy creating it. Thanks for visiting!


I accept Paypal and Etsy gift cards. You can use any credit card via Paypal even if you don't have an account with them.


I try to keep my shipping costs as reasonable as possible. I use the USPS with tracking on all my packages. Customers must pay their own customs fees. I will upgrade shipping if you let me know in advance that there's a rush.

Refunds and Exchanges

I work very hard to provide the highest quality handmade silk scarves and accessories and use only top of the line products in my work. With proper care, my items should last for many years if the instructions that come with the piece are followed.

Since mine is a very small shop, returns are a hassle and extreme financial hardship.
I will only accept returns if the item I sent you is defective and is in original condition with no damage or stains. Seller must notify me immediately of any defects and return within 2 weeks for a refund.

Buyer must pay for all shipping costs to return the item and send with tracking or other proof of mailing. When applicable, I refund money via the same way original payment was made. For example, if you pay with Paypal, I refund through Paypal.

Additional Policies and FAQs

Due to the nature painting on silk, it is virtually impossible to duplicate an item except to try and incorporate specific colors. For this reason, I cannot accept custom orders and I strive to keep a good amount of inventory listed on the site so that there will be plenty of items to choose from. With proper care (I include care labels with the items) my scarves and purses should last for many years.
