Hand painted hand created illustrated silk scarves

The name of my shop is Farawen silks. Farawen is an old high German word for colour and dye.

I started painting on silk a few years ago and loved the diverse and beautiful textures and colours silk allows. I'm now creating handmade Silk scarves on custom built stretcher frames and each creation is individual and unique.

Trained as a costume and set designer and obsessed with colour, my scarves reflect this love and tell stories to match.

Process: First I wash then stretch the silk. I use Gutta to plot my designs and silk paints with a variety of techniques to create my hand painted scarves.
Once painted, the silk is iron fixed and washed, ironed again, and the edges hand sewn, as traditional silk scarves are.

I use light habotai silk, which flows in the air and is almost translucent yet holds colour like a gem.

I will create your scarves to order. Every step is done meticulously by hand to give you the best quality scarf you deserve.
