SILK & COTTON is the creative outlet of Christiane Love, a textile artist, yoga teacher, and mother of three amazing boys. Ms. Love earned her BFA degree in Fashion Design with an emphasis on Surface Design from Murray State University.
All of SILK & COTTON's designs are hand drafted and scaled by Ms. Love. Christiane Love also hand draws all of the imagery and decorative elements creating true original works of wearable art. Each piece of silk and cotton fabric is hand dyed using such techniques as Arashi Shibori, Ice Dye, Serti, Low Water Immersion, and good old fashioned Tie Dye.
SILK & COTTON has been a zero waste company since 2016 and we are very passionate about upcycling too! In 2017 SILK & COTTON began upcycling hotel bedsheets that were destine to clog the landfill. Kauai, Hawaii is an epically beautiful place so tons of folks visit and we have lots of hotels and resorts. These hotels purchase new bedsheets every 6 months to a year and discard the old ones. Seeing that thousands of yards of high quality cotton were being discarded SILK & COTTON began to collect and incorporate this fabric into it's designs. Your purchase helps SILK & COTTON to continue to lighten the landfill and uplift good folks with hand made colorful upcycled wearable art.
