We demonstrate the ancient art of water marbling as we create original silk scarves in the booth at the event.  Paints are floated upon a liquid medium, manipulated into an original design using an assortment of combs and styluses, and captured instantly on white, habotai silk. Each is a one of a kind and show patrons are invited to interact in the process creating a unique craft experience.

Additionally offered are our designer collection, varying sizes and types of silk. These include shawls, Neckties, neck scarves and pocket squares and bow ties. They are all unique in both color and design.
