We offer exquisite hand dyed fabrics and trims that we hand dye weekly. We search our suppliers for the truly unusual, unique and high-end materials. Many of the items we dye are vintage and no longer available in stores. Silks in the form of Habotai, Velvet, Dupioni, Gauze, Charmeuse/Silk Satin, trims and ribbons are dyed, pleated or otherwise manipulated by us for special effects. Each color is applied individually, like an artist applies paint to a canvas. Dyeing is messy, time consuming to process and, there is a definite learning curve to color mixing. In the beginning, like most novices, we created every shade of “mud” imaginable. Fortunately, after 10 years plus of trial and error, we are past that stage, mostly! If visiting us at a show, look for the most vibrant colored booth staffed by the girls with rainbow-colored hands.
Uses for our beautiful fabrics and trims include dolls, hats, fascinators, art quilts, Victorian ribbon work, wearable embellishments and miniature character dressings and dollhouse interiors. Look for additional suggestions and examples under “Product Uses” on the site.
In our Etsy store, Textiles will be listed in color coordinated groupings using the most dominate color in each piece. Groupings will include a mixed variety of our fabrics.
Note: Textiles are not washable or dry cleanable. Decorative use only.
