Kerala, India. God's Own country. Someone said it's because of all the churches, mosques, and temples within blocks of each other. As you'll see in the pictures, that's quite true. I can't wait to go back. :)

New Silk Curtain are up for sale in the Etsy shop! 

They blocks are inspired by the skyline and adornments on buildings in the city of London. The patterns are twisted and twirled around on the fabric to give the design a contemporary edge. 

I can't wait to go back and design more products using silk. It was exciting and surprising to see the results of the natural dyes on silk fabric.
