Hand Painted Silk
Art, luxury, and functionality: all combine in one product to offer consummate value. The vibrant colors and images of our hand painted silk items make them both beautiful statement pieces as well as investments to be treasured.
Most of our silk garments are designed, drawn, and painted by hand: a skillful, labor intensive process. Dye saturation is methodically controlled during the process to ensure color integrity. Every piece is then pressure-steamed and put through a softening process for good colorfastness and comfort.
These silk paintings will outlast their peers in more traditional media.
Every hand painted item is unique. Our artists enjoy a lot of freedom in practicing their art. Therefore, they often improvise to modify the patterns provided to them. Such creativity and improvisations result in garments that are unique and reflective of the preferences and mood of the artist at a given time.
It is important not to expect machine-like consistency from handmade art. Handmade art will be non-uniform and will often have some imperfections. Such imperfections should not be considered defects; rather they are a sign of authenticity that the artwork was really created by hand.
The sumptuousness of pure silk, brilliant colors, and the creativity of master artists turn otherwise ordinary garments into wearable works of art.
