Our Silkies (Infinity & Simple Scarves) begin as an important part of someone’s life. In some cases, they are Wedding Kimonos or Saris; in others, they are everyday articles of clothing. When the garment is no longer loved or needed, we purchase Vintage Kimonos / Fabric, from Kyoto, Japan – the home of the Geisha, or Vintage Saris from India - to give it a new life. When the vintage Kimonos and Saris arrive in Philly, we carefully sort them, test to ensure they are pure silk, inspect for damage, launder when necessary, remove seams, pull stray threads and select complementary fabrics to cut and craft by hand. At the end of this process, we have recycled a loved article of clothing into a new fashion accessory.
