THE STORY BEHIND 
The significance of the Poppy can be traced back to the Napoleonic Wars in the 19th century, over 110 years before being adopted in Canada as a symbol for Remembrance Day. Records from that time indicate how thick Poppies grew over the graves of soldiers in the area of Flanders, France.
THE ARTISTIC PROCESS
Each design is individually hand drawn using a black gutta resist on natural white pure silk charmeuse.
WITH SILK DYES and paintbrushes the color is applied and blended
WHEN DRY the painted silk is steam set, permanently fixing the dye color , then the silk is hand washed and ironed
THE FINISHED hand 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 then designed and sewn by Lynne Kiel.
THESE ART PIECES take time and each are unique in their own way. I have made my best effort to show proper coloring of the silk and artwork in all my photos.
CUSTOM ORDERS for variations on length , width, artistic design and color are available by request. Share your ideas and let me make you something special.
