2016 saw lots of changes and additions to The Living Canvas line of products. Traditionally, I have limited my work to women’s accessories, but last year I met a potential customer (man) that expressed an interest in silk ties. After that conversation, the creative juices started to flow once again.

I have now been successfully sun dyeing 100% silk ties and even gone a step further introducing a line of perfectly matched men’s tie and women’s scarf sets. They are dyed using the same custom mixed dyes and the exact same type of plants are used to make the images on the set, offering a perfectly matched combo. Weddings? Anniversaries? Whatever?

I sold out in 2016 however I intend to get going on this line as soon as spring comes and my gardens begin to emerge again. In the meantime, enjoy the pictures.

As always, don’t forget to shop my on-line store where shipping is free in Canada when using the code FREESHIPFREE.
