Item of the Week: Hand Painted Silk Scarves

14 Dec

Rabia titled this scarf “Pomegranate” and writes about this scarf’s design and inspiration as follows: “The rustling sound of crisp leaves under my feet is what I await every year. Being surrounded by thick forests and fall splendor is hard to ignore. I love the oranges and browns and maroons and simply want them to stay forever. The colors of this scarf are inspired by fall and the title by pomegranate flowers.”

The silk fabric used is extremely soft and comfortable, yet luxurious. It is lightweight, breezy, and drapes perfectly. The scarf is 11″ by 60″ and has hand-rolled hems with 100% silk thread and beautiful 100% silk fringes on both ends.

Scarves are baked in the oven for 15-20 minutes so the dyes set; this assures that the colors will neither fade nor bleed. All of Rabia’s scarves are machine washable and safe to dry clean.

Rabia is originally from Pakistan. She is a renowned Silk Artist, aspiring teacher, and budding entrepreneur. Rabia graduated with a Master’s Degree in Business Administration, is currently pursuing her M.Ed. in Education with a focus on ESOL, and operates a small IT management company with her husband. She is a mother of two beautiful daughters who share her love for colors. Rabia has been an EWI artist member since 2004 and is a graduate of the Career and Entrepreneur Center’s Training for Success program.

Colors and fabrics have always fascinated Rabia and she is continuously amazed by the elegant yet striking effect dyes have on silk. Her designs celebrate the changing seasons, life events and experiences, and the wide range of human emotions. Rabia takes special requests; she can do commissioned work, as well as personalized scarves for those who want to buy a special and unique gift for someone.
