Hand Painted Silk Scarves

I have a new passion, well, don't know how new it is, I have always loved them.  Now I am offering hand painted silk scarves in my shops and I love them!!  They are so much fun!  I keep offering more each week, but right now look at my treasures. 

Great Barrier Reef
I do love blues and teals together.  This gorgeous ocean blue and teal streaked scarf is hand painted and is 100% silk. Hand hemmed as well. The colors are so rich and true that they remind me of the Great Barrier Reef pictures I've seen. This is my way of going to a tropical locale.

Lovely mixture of blues, greens, and teals dripping into each other to create a picture for you to wear with your favorite outfit. Imagine this with a Winter White outfit!!

Over the Rainbow
This one has been so popular that I've had to go back into the studio repeatedly to recreate it.  I personally love it because it will match absolutely anything you wear!!  It has a little of this and a little that until it truly makes me think rainbow!  One bride has asked for this in a sash and train for her wedding--I'll let you know how that turns out.  Still cogitating that one.

Prim and Proper
I call this one the Prim and Proper because the royal wedding was in full swing and I could picture one of the Royals wearing it.  The extraordinary part is one bride ordered these colors in a shawl for her mother to wear with her dress on the wedding day.  I received her response when she opened her package: "The shawl was FABULOUS!!! My mom loooooved it and she can't wait to wear it with her dress!!! Thanks again!"  It is so wonderful to hear from the recipients when they finally have their product in their hands.  Hopefully, I will be able to get a picture of her on the special day.

Tropical Island
Hmmmm, I'm starting to see a theme here; does this mean I need to take a vacation to someplace warm and sandy with palm trees?  Possibly.  This one is called Tropical Island and now I'm thinking how about a nice wrapper or sarong type thing to tie around your waist over your suit.  Yep, I'm really on a theme now.  Okay, how about wearing this lovely scarf with your white pant/short/dress suit to the garden wedding or picnic this summer.  See, I can get back to thinking more normally for the rest of us. 

All the scarves are 11" x 60" and should be dry cleaned or hand washed in cold water. Low iron steam.  But as you can tell, I am open to suggestions: need a shawl?  a larger scarf?  a poncho?  a ruana (big wrapper, my personal favorite)?  Contact me and let's use our imaginations together.
I even received a custom order for a goddess in Australia.  She has goddess products and wanted the scarves to match her theme.  I think the match turned out so well.  Let me know what you think.  Here's a couple: 

The paper shows what she sent me to match.  The scarf turned out luscious!  And she loved them.  She will be attending the Every Woman Expo at the Perth Convention Exhibition Centre in Australia and will have these lovelies available.  Try to stop by to see her if you are in the area and tell her Momma Goddess sent you.

Here's another sample of her new scarves.  I love how these colors are so rich and jewel like.  Her shop is called Goddess in a Bottle and she has some marvelous custom blended perfumes in addition to other goddess goodies available.  Stop by to see Tracey Jewel and tell her the Momma Goddess sent you.  Her shop will be the only place to buy these lovely scarves unless you find her at the expo. 

Let me know what you think of my latest passion.  Also, do contact me if you want something special.


  1. Trudi--I absolutely love these. I think everyone you make is even more beautiful than the last. Can that be possible? Tropical Island is my favorite--all my favorite colors in one beautiful scarf.
    Great post!

  2. Trudy , your Tropical Island scarf is such a soothing combination of colors. I love it!

  3. Love your scarves, particularly the Great Barrier Reef! So luxurious!

  4. Lovely all of them... my favorite... Over the rainbow... Beautiful work or art Trudi, congratulations :)

  5. I love the scarf I bought for mom. It's luscious. The colors are vibrant the fabric oh so soft - perfect combination. I'll need another for a gift very soon.

  6. Oooo, they're all gorgeous, but I think I like the second scarf you made for Tracy, from Goddess in a Bottle.
    I see that Tracy has been a guest on Oprah. That makes you two degrees of separation from the TV Goddess, herself! Maybe she will catch wind of your goodies... now, wouldn't THAT be cool!

  7. They are all gorgeous. Such great combinations of color. My favorite is all of them.
