New amtextile art etsy shop!

I LOVE to dye fabric. I feel like an alchemist when I stir all of the different colored dyebaths. Recently, I realized that my hand-dyed creations were getting lost in the mix with the knitted jewelry and recycled fabric accessories.

So, I made an online shop just for my Hand-dyed Japanese Textile Art-to-wear!
is the latest of my online shops featuring my 3D Bubble Wraps in Autumnal colors.

Come check it out and let me know what you think :)

Custom Orders

I Love Custom Orders!

It's so much fun to make something inspired by a customer. There's always something new to work with- whether it's a fabric I have never used, or a color scheme I had not thought of- I love how I can make something for a specific someone! Above are some pictures of some of my latest custom orders- loose fitting, silk dupioni "origami" jackets. Such a great item. Named by my customer, the origami inspiration is made by my signature design elements- 3D thread ridges. They can be worn in so many different ways, fit so many sizes and shapes becomingly and silk dupioni is a sculptural and GREAT fabric!

Thanks for looking!
