I have some friends attending the Burn.
You know, that yearly gathering at Black Rock City! They (and 60,000 other folks) all need amazing, playa worthy garb… such as this 7 foot long, featherless silk boa, woven entirely from recycled & vintage silk scraps.
Im excited to provide some….
Several bustle skirts are complete. Now I need fabric to create matching boas! Each requires 4-5 lbs of lightweight silk, as well as bits of used lace & velvet. That means 25-35 lbs of fabric to buy/collect in the next 2 months!
Silk fabric can be vintage, new, used or recycled. It can be in the form of clothing, saris, scarves, new/used yardage or bulk scraps. It can be imperfect, torn, outdated, garment industry cast offs, or remnants. Most colors & size pieces will work!
- Want to share your resources/contacts in the industry to help me source fabric ?
- Have fabric you’d like to donate/or want me to buy from you? then send me photos!
- Want to custom order one of these amazing featherless boas (or a matching silk bustle) of your own now? (or see what I have already made?)
Please email email@example.com
Thanks and have a fabulous day!
