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.
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. For the coming festive season I am using lots of red, cherry red,poppy red and burgundy.
I have finally perfected my skinny ties that younger men have been asking for. I have four colourways ready for my first show at Coolings Nurseries, Rushmore Hill, Knockholt TN14 7NN from 31 March to 2nd April 10 am until 4.30pm.
I sell my work at craft and design fairs throughout the country (see show dates). If you cannot see the colours you saw at the show and would like please contact me via e-mail. If you have a problem ordering from my web site please call 07708424199. I can take a telephone order.
My work is available through my online shop, Etsy.com and Folksy.com and also on sale at Art in the Mill, Knaresborough, and Shorne Country Park, near Gravesend, Kent
If you would like to comission something special please call me to discuss your ideas.
