THE POETRY OF SILK

Harmony with nature, mindfulness, and quiet imperfect beauty describe the process and philosophy behind The Poetry of Silk.

Every step is slow-crafted by hand in my studio: from dyeing silk using plant dyes from flowers, roots, foliage, nuts, fruits, and woods; sourced from fair trade companies or locally foraged, to lightly pressing for a natural texture, and rolling onto handmade wooden spools.

By choosing The Poetry of Silk eco-friendly plant dyed silk ribbons you are also saving our waterways from unnecessary pollution. I use eco-friendly packaging. My labels are tree-free and their adhesive is compostable. I also print on lokta paper, one of the most eco-friendly, renewable, non-tree papers. I love sustainable products and caring for the environment, I am glad you do as well!

Handmade in my studio in Orlando, Florida, USA.

Do you offer custom colors?

At the moment, I am not offering custom colors. I hand dye limited edition colors.

How are your silk ribbons made?

Following a wabi sabi lifestyle, every step is slowly crafted by hand in my studio: from hand dyeing silk using plant dyes from flowers, roots, foliage, nuts, fruits, and woods; sourced from fair trade companies or locally foraged, to tearing it organically into ribbons embracing imperfection, lightly pressing for a natural texture, and rolling onto handmade wooden spools.

“Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.” - Lao Tzu

You are buying a "living color" that may appear to change depending on the lighting. Each silk ribbon is one of a kind and may have nuances, marbling, speckles. Plant dyeing embraces imperfection and find beauty in its authenticity.
