Hand Dyed Silk Collections

For a long time I have been wanting to put together coordinated collections based on images rather than just a simple colour run or gradation in our hand dyed fabrics. Sometimes we just need a little help in putting colours together.

I was planning to use my own photos and was just working out how to do the display when I chanced upon Design Seeds daily post of the most beautiful colour selections. They have graciously given me permission to use a selection of images as a starting point.

Then I was fortunate to find an excellent supplier of dupioni silk so decided to make these collections in silks. Not only for the quilter but perfect quality for embroiders, home decorators and anyone else who appreciates fine quality fabric in beautiful combinations

So I have created the first 8 collections and am so pleased with them. They are initially in 50cm x 50cm pieces in sets of 6 but of course larger quantities are possible too.

Then next 8 are underway and they will be just as beautiful I promise.

They are now available on the website and I can't wait to see what people do with the. My mind is full of ideas too and I will show you some as they are created (or even while they are being created.
