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.

These vibrant silk textiles are then transformed into one-of-a-kind gowns, lingerie, kimono capes and scarves that are available in our workshop as well as online. Our made to measure garments are hand crafted using precise measurements, intuitive draping and couture sewing techniques.
