Welcome to Designs on Silk
I create vibrant hand dyed fine silk scarves for men and women using the best quality Chinese silk and french steam fix dyes. For men I also hand craft brightly coloured silk ties, bow ties, cravats and silk handkerchiefs to match. The self tie bow ties are now available to buy. For women I create silk sarongs, silk necklaces, silk wraps, scrunchies, and other silk gifts and accessories.
Having lived overseas for many years I love bright colours. My inspiration for colour combinations comes from the colours and patterns you see in nature when the sun is shining or on a bright winters day. I am thinking of summer colours now the sun is here.
Each piece of silk is entirely hand dyed so is totally unique. If you cannot see a colour combination of your choice please contact me for a commission. I have recently tried several darker colours which have been suggested by customers that have proved successful.
I sell my work at craft and design fairs throughout the country (see show dates). Having recently moved to Kent I have become a member of Produced in Kent.
NEW WEBSITE WILL BE COMING SOON
My work is available through my online shop, Etsy.com and Folksy.com. It is on sale at Art in the Mill, Knaresborough and at The Gallery, North York Moors National Park Headquarters, Danby
