Quality gift items made from hand-dyed natural fabrics. All fabrics are washable, and the colours are permanently fixed into the fabrics. My colours are bright and strong to reflect the vibrancy of the Nelson Region. Each item is unique and individually hand-made, washable and the colours are permanently fixed into the fabrics. I make a wide range of products. Silk and merino scarves, sun visors, purses, fridge magnets, gift cards, spec cases, aprons, and cushion covers, which incorporate a variety of dyeing techniques.
Reversible Visor – Ikat style
Sun visor featuring quilted hand-dyed silk
The reversible sun visor is made from quilted silk on one side, and strong, cotton fabric on the reverse side.
The silk is made by using a twisting technique. Once the fabric is twisted to look like a rope, the dyes are hand-painted on this surface.
Once dried and opened up, the fabric resembles ikat weaving patterns.
All fabrics are steam-fixed to create strong, vibrant, permanent colour.
Bias binding edging makes the visor robust and hard-wearing. Comfortable. Washable. Colourfast.
Care: Hand-wash in warm water using a gentle soap product. Rinse. Can machine spin out excess moisture. Air dry.
