Here are some of the basic styles of scarves I am currently making. I also do experimental pieces which are offered to customers as they are available. Go to the Buy Shibori link at the top to see where you can find my work. Please direct any special requests to the shops and galleries listed there.
If you are a store or gallery, contact me if you are interested in receiving a pick box.
Kantan means “simple” in Japanese and this is my latest version of this size scarf, measuring 11″ x 60″ 5mm habotai silk. Folded in half, accordion folded, pole wrapped (arashi (storm) shibori), discharged, overdyed, and steam set. This is a very textured, sculptural neck scarf. Wear it instead of a necklace!
22 assorted scarves arranged in a floral display-sugg. retail $79
single kantan scarf shown full length (base dyed mustard and overdyed in rust brown and green)
Nice size for office or business wear.
Chou– chou means butterfly in Japanese and this wrap always makes me feel light and airy when I wear it- as if I were wearing butterfly wings.
Made from lightweight (5mm) habotai silk, it measures 45″ x 72″ when fully extended. (The textural pleating reduces the size by at least a third but if you ironed/steamed out the pleating, those are the dimensions you would have.) Great for a little evening elegance, a cocktail party, or just to sizzle up a simple outfit for a special occasion.
Each Chou shawl is finished with beads hand sewn to each of the tips, gently weighing the billowing silk. Suggested retail is $179 and it is available in many colors.
Here are a couple other ways to wear the butterfly wrap-
Obi scarf- obi means sash and is traditionally used when wearing a kimono. Here are a few contemporary ways to wear this piece-
The Obi scarf measures 22″ x 90″ of 8mm habotai silk. This piece features the combined techniques of itajime and arashi shibori. Suggested to retail at $145.
This Kyoto wrap done in mint and chocolate using an altered fold in arashi technique measures 22″ x 72″ using 5mm silk habotai.
Amy models a green version of the straight pleated arashi shibori with beaded tips. Suggested retail, $120.
If you are able to catch me at a show near you, you’ll see a wide array of my most current and experimental pieces.

Are the pleats permanent on silk? If yes, How do you make them permanent?
the pleating is steam set and ‘semi-permanent ‘
