Welcome to Stonewell Studio
Our silk textiles are designed and produced by hand in our studio. We mix custom colors using a non-toxic dye and thickeners made of tree sap or seaweed paste. The ground color and all of the designs are applied directly to the surface of the silk using a simple bamboo brush. When the work is complete, the dye is bonded to the silk fiber using a high heat steam chamber. The excess pigment is rinsed from the silk until the water runs clear.
