Nearly the same color as Pantone's newly-announced Color of the Year, "Veri Peri," this smooth periwinkle-and-white is named after the bright and shiny gemstone!

It is believed that Tanzanite has the power to transform negative thoughts and energies into positive ones, and bestows the wearer with increased self-awareness. It can help a person recognize her true calling, underlying strengths, and the many possibilities that lie ahead.

A radiant alchemy of off-white and lavender, this color - which is a smoother iteration of our beloved "Phantasm" dupioni - draws its inspiration from J.R.R. Tolkien's legendarium!  Lothlorien is the fairest of all the realms in Middle-Earth.  This magical kingdom, which means "Dreamflower" in Elvish, is ruled by Queen Galadriel from her city of brightly-lit treehouses and forms the Elven center of resistance against the Dark Lord Sauron in The Lord of the Rings stories.  Locked in an ongoing conflict of biblical proportions against the forces of darkness, Lothlorien is a heavenly paradise and land of light whose spirit is perfectly captured in this luminous fabric!  Bonus: this silk is 60" wide. more info

The shantung version of our popular "Blackberry" dupioni, this mauve-and-black cross-pollination is the sartorial incarnation of the exotic - and poisonous! - winter flower!  A member of the buttercup family, Hellebore comes from the Greek Helleborus, and translates literally to "injure food" - indeed, it was famously used as a poison!  Most notoriously, the ancient Greeks successfully used it to sabotage a besieged city's water supply.  Since then, Hellebore has held a shadowy place in the flower world.  Full of magic, mystery, and danger, this flower is a gothic delight whose lovely dark coloring draws us into the darkness with it... more info

Well, my precious petals, let me regale you with a tale of the splendid purple MALLOW, a floral marvel that dances in the breeze like a melody from the heart! Picture a burst of regal purple blooms, each petal a dainty dancer twirling in nature's grand ball. Oh, the mallow is a charmer, indeed, with a hue so divine it can only be captured by this resplendent purple-and-black shantung!

In the garden, the purple Mallows stand tall and proud, their petals reflecting the same iridescence as a silky shantung that one might find adorning the shoulders of a high-spirited aristocrat at a garden soirée. Oh, the synergy of nature and couture! The mallow's graceful presence makes the heart skip a beat! So, my darling buds, imagine the Mallow as a botanical fashionista, weaving the very essence of joy into a great garden gala!
