THE STORY BEHIND 
  • Today, the poppy is seen as a symbol of remembrance for the men and women who died during World Wars I and II. Every November you will see many people adorning red paper poppies in memory of those who gave their lives for our freedom. 
THE ARTISTIC PROCESS
  • Each design silk top is individually hand drawn using a black gutta resist on natural white pure silk crepe de chine.
  • WITH FRENCH SILK DYES and paintbrushes the color is applied and blended by hand creating one of a kind combinations
  • WHEN DRY the painted silk is steam set, permanently fixing the dye color , then the silk is hand washed and ironed
  • THE FINISHED painted silk is then ready to be made into a One Of A Kind piece of wearable art. Each piece is hand cut and hand made which may result in slight variations. All tops are designed and sewn by Lynne Kiel.
THESE ART PIECES
