THE STORY BEHIND

 According to the ancient legends, the gecko was a powerful spiritual guardian living in the fish ponds. ... The gecko was never harmed, and even had the ability to change colors when threatened. 

THE ARTISTIC PROCESS Each painted silk item is individually hand made. The silk begins in natural white and the artistic design is drawn by hand with a gutta resist

WITH FRENCH SILK DYES and paint brushes the color is added and blended by hand creating one of a kind combinations.

WHEN DRY the painted silk is steam set to fix the color. once steaming is complete the painted silk is hand washed and ironed

THESE ART PIECES take time and each are unique in their own way. I have made my      best effort to show accurate coloring of the silk and artwork in all my photos 

THE FINISHED painted  silk tank top is preshrunk and colorfast. Each top is                  individually hand cut and handmade which may result in slight variations .
