Trending Babushka Headscarves in the News!

A surprising fashion item is coming back in style and can be seen on the runways of London, Milan and Paris.  It’s also been spotted on the necks of celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez and India Arie. There are many ways of wearing a square scarf, including the traditional one of the Ukrainian Babushka, tied at the chin. This is the retro look that has been featured in Vogue and one that’s useful for keeping the hair in place whilst being driven in an open topped convertible.  If like me, you are still waiting for that opportunity, a sculptural tie under the chin is a lovely alternative  These two scarves were painted on Habotai silk and cost 28.00. They measure approx. 90 x 90 cms. They are not in my shop – contact me to buy.

Unique Silk Scarves, Ties and Art

Contact Me

Welcome to my site where you will find unique hand painted and dyed silk scarves and ties. I also feature original textile art and art prints.

You may be looking for a gift for someone special, or a treat for yourself. My scarves and ties are vibrant, eye catching and affordable. I paint on high quality silks with the best steam fixable French dyes. Each season I study fashion colours to match my scarves to the current trends, so you can confidently accessorize. Of course, my ties don’t follow current trends, but dare to be different and you will stand out from the crowd! My unique ties are often purchased for special occasions such as weddings.

There is nothing like the warmth of pure silk around the neck in winter, and in summer my lightweight scarves can bring a cosy touch to a cool day and glamorize any outfit.

You may also enjoy browsing my textile art and reading about my process. There are links to my shop where you will find all my products, including fine art prints.
