The Feathered Silk Story
Over the years, the breadth of our design experience has naturally broadened to incorporate a variety of mediums, as we discover and devise products to complement our paperwares. The very first whisper of our Feathered Silk range came about many moons ago, with a blushing bride on the hunt for a raw, organic alternative to run-of-the-mill ribbon to adorn her wedding stationery. Custom designed and made to order in a tiny little batch, that first handful of ribbon celebrated the notion of slowing down in order to create quality rather than quantity. In this modern day and age of off-the-rack things made on the cheap, the concept of making with thought, care, simplicity and plain old skill is one that we ladies revel in. Five years on, we have our ribbon-making down to a fine art. From ribbon came runners, sweetly scripted fabric banners and the grandest of silk backdrops, all of which are made by hand in our studio, from colouring and cutting, to unravelling threads, feathering edges, pressing and packaging.
