Enjoy your silk scarf
Silk is a gorgeous natural protein fiber with unique features and outstanding lusts. The shimmering appearance of silk is due to the triangular prism-like structure of the silk fibre, which allows silk scarves to refract incoming light at different angles, thus producing different colors.
Silk is warm and cozy in winter and comfortably cool when temperatures rise. Its natural temperature-regulating properties give silk this paradoxical ability to cool and warm simultaneously. Silk is highly absorbent and dries quickly. It can absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture without feeling damp. Silk will absorb perspiration while letting your skin breathe.
Painting on silk is a favour, a fine crisp silk with a hand painted motif can be anything. It's fascinating to see how the silk color flows into and permeates the threads (in another way than painting with oil, acrylic, watercolors on canvas and sheet of paper).
We, Carita and Raffe have after several years in the finance industry, finally actualized our dream right here in our beautiful archipelago. The project to create, build and design has inspired us for several years.
We work from our beautiful archipelago house located on an island in the archipelago of Stockholm. Carita creates her own designs by hand- painting on silk fabric with great focus and precision on the white silk fabric which is span on a frame, when the painting is ready she refine the silk through a process making the silk scarves a lovely genuine product with bright beautiful colors, waiting for results, the color may have leaked during the process. 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.
The design tells a story about experiences and events in the world, named afterwards such as ”Captivating Hearts” its about captivating events that makes our hearts feel affinity with each other. Another example is "Stureplan Stockholm" from before with multiple motifs.
Our creative skills has made it possible that some of the originals has been transferred onto a digital print on finest quality silk, exquisitely finished with hand-rolled hems.
We have also developed a handmade giftbox "Click´n go clutch" to Caritas products based on her painted motives which gives you the feeling you deserve, comes with the scarf.
