One of a kind experience………… Live Art Fashion Design
We are a fashion design company creating exclusive wearable art fabrics. Witness live creation of designer fabrics using the ancient art of ebru on silk. Each composition is unique, developed as a floating picture. All of the patterns we create are a one of a kind design that is made using a single print taken from paint images that are floated on water. We offer onsite creation of these prints as well as having our seasonal designer lines of silk scarves for sale.
We have a set design and backdrop for the event performances as well as a short video to provide you with all the promotional materials needed. We also offer modeling services as well as the opportunity for live music.
The art of taking a print from ink floating on water was first developed in Japan and by the 12th century the art of Suminagashi had been established. In the beginning of the 15th century the art of marbling would make its entrance into Turkey by way of the Silk Road where the use of all an all water based art form was developed.
Ebru or Turkish Marbling is a classical marbling technique producing one-of-a-kind floating pictures. Choosing from a wide variety of colors, liquid paints are placed on top of a thickened transparent fluid bath, creating a unique color palette, which can then be manipulated to create an endless array of designs. This is done using combs, rakes and hand held styluses. Beautiful patterns and various other effects are created by drawing through a second application of paint that is placed directly on top of the first. Finally, a single print of the composed design is transferred to paper or silk
In addition to creating wearable art in the form of scarves, we can also do custom, single prints on larger sizes of silk fabric, suitable for use in apparel and interior design.
Ebru designs created exclusively by Betsy Lamb.
Suminagashi designs created exclusively by Richard Aldorasi.
We developed these programs so participants could create beautiful, high quality, wearable art for themselves, and to introduce a one of a kind, hand marbled silk scarf fashion line.
We are a privately owned art program, and not affiliated with any other scarf painting programs of its kind.
We are the ORIGINAL CREATORS and use only the highest quality silk and specially developed paints that will not change the hand of the silk. Our scarves are 100% guaranteed to never run, wash out or fade.
The art of Ebru has for five centuries intrigued, fascinated and inspired the imagination by creating soft, warm colored images, laced with exciting, never ending patterns, lines, swirls, and figured images.
The Turkish art “Ebru” and Japanese “Suminagashi” stand alone as the only art forms created by designing and printing floating pictures on water.
