Fabric Art Comissions
I've decided that all the silk art I can make is well and good, but it a) doesn't pay the fabric b) I seriously can give away only so much of the stuff until it loses the novelty. But, as any other art, it only gets better if I practise, hence, I am offering commissions of the same, as well as selling pieces I made.
For orders, simply send me a note; if you don't have your own pattern, check out my gallery for the "Silk" folder, I'll be putting up examples and patterns I planned. I will also try to keep you up to date for the work-in-progress.
Here are the general pricing rules for anything up to 90cm×90cm/90cm×180cm (scarves); price depends on techniques used and size, and is minus fixating cost, fabric and shipping:
(I keep my costs transparent, so don't say I didn't tell you)
Bind/Stitch (Kawamaki, Komasu Nui, Rasen) Shibori: 10-15€
Continuous Stitch (Nui)/Arashi Shibori/Press (Itajime) 20-25€ – This may sound simple, but it needs a LOT of preparation work, namely, stitching or folding the fabric into a neat stack.
Cold Wax/Stencils 20€
Please note that while Itajime, Arashi and Kawamaki are fairly easy to make for me, especially complicated Resist picture-like patterns (gutta/yûzen) take up several days of dedicated work to get even set up.
The Shibori and Wax prices also count if you want something made out of cotton/viscose/linen dyed (such as a t-shirt or skirt).
Prices for pieces that are deliberately bigger than a large scarf are up to negotiation, with the prices above as basis.
For fabric prices, please consult this site
and and this section of the same for more unusual sizes
(like a beach wrap for example). Please note that I also can dye Shibori on Wool, but no Gutta/Yûzen.
I ship from Germany as regular mail and with DHL. If you want a different mailing service, please inform me in your order. Payment via PayPal or check out my wishlist.
Commissions are open!
