Displayed in the Galleries below are scarves that have been created in the past few months. While each scarf is a one-of-a-kind, Sofia can come relatively close to duplication if you are interested in purchasing. Contact her for more information.

Shibori is the ancient Japanese method of embellishing fabric by using shape resist, pleating, stitch resist and/or folding/wrapping and then dyeing.  By using lengths of white silk, Sofia applies these different methods with single or multiple fiber-reactive and/or indigo dyes to achieve designs that are unique and vibrant.

Sofia also hand-paints on silk, and often over-dyes, creating abstract landscapes.  

A third technique, which really intrigues Sofia, is taking flowers or leaves and steaming the pigments on silk, resulting in Botanical Dyed prints.
