THE STORY OF CARITA K SCARVES
Carita K design


I love to create with colors I´ve painted all my life. It use to be mainly on canvas, sheet of paper or decorating furniture and painting walls with oil, acrylic or aquarelle colors. A couple of years ago I feelt that, we don’t have the space to store all these paintings.


I started thinking about ways to be able to continue my passion of creating with colors. Silk scarves- Perfect! I must try this, painting on silk fabric, this luxurious, glamorous material. Think, be able to wear my paintings. It´s so cool to scrunch your painting without ruining it.
Yes, I wanted to make my art available to more people. Painting on canvas or furniture is amazing, but you can´t wear them when your´re going out. That´s how the idea of wearable art was born. My brother bought some fine silk fabric directly in India when he was on a business trip and in a few weeks I was trying new types of colour and new techniques on this beautiful fabric.


It is important to have the right colors for silk. It is also important to stretch silk in a way that doesn´t damage it. The entire process of painting on silk is much more delicate compared to painting on canvas – mainly because of color dilution and spreading- one paintbrush touch can spread into a much bigger area and it´s hard to know how big. Each paint behaves slightly differently, each type of silk too. A hand-painted silk fabric where you get the steam fixation is resulting in a work of art with wonderful lusts and shine You do not look at other materials.


My inspiration comes from experiences and event in the world, named afterwards such as “Captivating Hearts” it´s about captivating events that makes our hearts feel affinity with each other. Another example is “Stureplan Stockholm” from before with multiple motifs. And now after a couple of years I have created and painted a hole lot of different scarves, some of my originals has been transferred onto a digital print on finest quality silk, exquisitely finished with hand-rolled hems and are available to purchase in our online store. www.caraff.se/caritakdesign, GårdYes by Caraff.
