New shantung raw silks in stock!

It took me some time to take the pictures and get them on the net, but it is finally done. On my last trip I found the most amazing quality of shantung raw silks.hThe are 100 grams per meter, superb quality, the best!

I had to buy.

For all you silk virgins out there: Shantung raw silk are the shiny type of raw silk that shows the knotted pieces in the weave. This can be rough or more finely done, but it's there. This means that the silks treads used are not the long unsealed ones, but the ones that are in pieces. This happens when the silk worms, when they are done owning their job, are not boiled out, but are allowed to eat their way out of the cocoon. Some refer to this silk as "peace silk" because nothing is killed in the manufacturing process. The other characteristic of shantung silks is the radiant shine.

Now these silks are woven in many weight. A lighter silk is for example more appropriate for a garment that requires a lot of it, like a sari, or that needs a great flow The heavier kind (meaning more silk per meter), can be used for jackets, upholstery, patchwork or anything that needs to take more shape. For this they are excellent material for for example wedding gowns.

I managed to get 24 different colors. The look amazing together, but they look great in any combination.

Feast your eyes on this! See them on Etsy!

Silk Sale starts now!!!!!

Dear fellow silk lovers,
I am starting of this sale with pictures of my two sons. In their spare time they help me out in the shop, mostly counting buttons and arranging fabrics. Obviously I do pay them, otherwise it would not be child labor, but plain slavery. I asked them to show me how my customers would react if I were to have a sale in the shop. This is what they came up with!


Welcome to this SALE that is larger and bigger!
The reason for this is that I was in India last month and I bought so many beautiful silks that I need room to keep them. They will be arriving and the end of March, and I am really excited about introducing you to my new sweeties when they come.

The deal
I will be offering you discounts between 20% and 30% on almost everything in my shop. There will be an additional 5% discount on the sale section that is usually excluded from the sales. The sale starts now and will be on for 10 days. In this periode of time I may not be able to reply as quick as I usually do on special requests. The best thing to do is order what you like in the amount you want. If there is a shipment overcharge as a result of this, I will calculate it and reimburse the difference when I handle your order.

No coupon codes please

I have introduced the discounts using Etsy on Sale. The discounts are already given in the prices. No coupon codes are needed. Please do not use any coupon codes you may have during this sale period. They do not apply!

But there is more.......
My new shipment is due to arrive at the end of this month, but it will take me a few months to list everything in my shop. In order to see the new merchandise you might have to revisit a couple of times. All my visitors who end up spending $ 200,00 or more during this sale will receive a personalized discount coupon for a one-time 20% off on my new collection if they spend a minimum of $ 50,00 !!! The coupon will be valid for the rest of 2016.
