Okay, cards on the table (see what we did there?): this color was a mistake - the factory was trying to pull off a completely different pair of colors, but just like the Batman villain Jack Napier, the yarns were dipped in the wrong vats, woven together, and sent to our warehouse. Thus, “Joker,” a riotous combination of violet and green, was born!

(Accidentally) custom-made just for us, so you cannot find it anywhere else!!

A sublime adaptation of our perennially popular "French Lilac" dupioni, this striking taffeta was designed by and made exclusively for us! That means you can't get it anywhere else!

This cold fusion of violet and white creates an unforgettable contrast accompanied by a silvery resonance that recalls the bright purple flower from the dandelion family! In early Celtic times, it was regarded as the embodiment of the vegetation goddess Chicory, and with her purple eyes she constantly scanned the horizon for her spouse. Nowadays, the chicory flower graces roadsides and meadows all over the world and is a symbolic reminder of the importance of self-care, particularly in situations where we may have lost ourselves while taking care of others.

A member of the lilac family, the Montaigne features showy panicles of fragrant, pink shell-shaped flowers rising above the foliage in mid-spring, which emerge from distinctive rose-hued buds.

Features microlines that measure 0.5mm - very tiny, and perfect for adding a nuanced texture unlike anything you ever imagined!

This extraordinary hue is a deep hypnotic violet infused with a rich dark brown! It was designed by - and made exclusively for - us, so you cannot find it anywhere else!

“Bruja” is the Spanish word for witch. While the stereotype might make one think of a mysterious woman of color who wields magic to control other people, the practice of brujeria evolved into a form of resistance when colonizers tried to subjugate people in faraway lands and prevent their spiritual connection to the earth. A Bruja, therefore, is not a fantastical figment of the imagination, but a modern-day spiritual woman whose goal is to tap into a deeper language of the universe around us…

The Celestrina butterfly, with its delicate wings and dusty blue hue, is a symbol of grace and transformation. Its iridescent wings shimmer in the sunlight, evoking a sense of wonder and awe, and it embodies the possibility of change and growth, and the idea that beauty can emerge from even the humblest of beginnings.

In much the same way, this dainty silk taffeta fabric's pale beige and dusty blue (with a hint of lavender!) colors blend perfectly with each other, reflecting the Celestrina’s beauty and grace. The fabric is airy and light, much like the butterfly's wings, and it makes any project soar!
