TYPES OF SILK

I often work with the following types of silk:

Chiffon, ponge, organza, bourette, silk jersey, shantung silk, raw silk, silk woven.

 

SILK THREADS AND UNCOMBED SHEEP CURLS

In the offer I have colored silk threads as pictured on the right side.

They are painted with quality artificial colors for silk and wool, to the left untreated genuine Leicester sheep curls, also painted with these colors.

The beautiful shine and natural elasticity of wool and silk can easily be seen in the pictures.

HAND PAINTED (WITH NATURAL COLORS) COTTON GAUZE, CHIFFON WORKS AND THREE TYPES OF WOOL

Cotton gauze, silk chiffon and three types of natural wool were cooked overnight in a bergamot berry juice which resulted with beautiful shades of pink silk and cotton and golden brown toned wool. Thus obtained colors are persistent and long-lasting.

SHIBORI TECHNIQUE

Shibori technique of dyeing natural materials is an old Japanese technique which has been perfected. The indigo plant, famous for its shade dark blue, was mostly used by Japanese for coloring.

After aligning the knots and having sewn the details on the canvas together and cooking in indigo color, we get a decorative uncolored pattern on a colored surface.

The ways and techniques to treat wool are countless, and you can try out some of your ways yourself. A classic way of making the material is by smoothing the material and arranging it between the two slats and spinning the spatula, so after the color cooking we get rectangular decorations.
