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.
