Felted accessories with a small addition of silk look just beautiful. Silk fabric also makes them lightweight and suitable for warm seasons. In my studio, I use only natural chiffons and habotais. As they have open weave, they easily interweave with thin wool fibers.
- Silk chiffon is a lightweight fabric woven of a crepe yarn. It is almost transparent, perfect for all kinds of elegant evening wear. I use both smooth and crinkled one.
- Silk habotai is a type of silk fabric used in ancient Japan for making kimonos. It is shimmering and easy to dye. With a variety of available patterns and shades it often allows me to cross the borders of my imagination.
I love working with silk and using it as a main material or as a background of my accessories. I also do not hesitate to add small pieces of silk to my jewelry from time to time. It makes my creations more lightweight, unique and balanced.
