Featuring one-of-a-kind wearable works of art created by a unique process called Nuno felting. This technique, done by hand, bonds pure silk fabric with luxurious fibers to create brand new fabrics which are drapable, lightweight and sheer.

Colorful swashes of silk gauze. I hand painted the dye on each piece of fabric and then steamed them for 20 minutes so the colors develop. As with felting, the dyeing process also ends with a delightful surprise as the colors deepen and merge to create new colors. These will be used as the bases for the scarves. Can't decide on which one I like best!
