It is with much excitement that I write to introduce you to SILK/SOIE, a new business that I have been building for the past number of months.
Many of you know that I am a passionate hand-embroiderer, and SILK/SOIE, this new venture, is very simply the art of hand-embroidery brought to life in luxurious silk - in the form of scarves, shawls, wraps, and other accessories - what I have come to refer to as WEARABLE ART.
I recognize that in the time we are living the success of this new business will depend heavily on word-of-mouth and a social media presence. I hope because of this, you will consider sharing this post with friends and family and help spread the word. I encourage everyone to poke around our website www.silksoie.ca and follow us here on INSTAGRAM. We have wonderful things to share in the coming weeks and months and hope that you will be a part of it.
When you visit the website, you will have the opportunity to see and purchase from our 1st COLLECTION, and read about our current FEATURED ARTIST and our ARTIST PARTNERSHIPS. It is also where you will find information about our ARTIST COMPETITION for EMERGING ARTISTS - a project we are very excited about.
The idea behind SILK/SOIE is simple and two-fold: turn original needlework into beautiful wearable art while championing emerging artists and helping them share their voices. I hope you will join me on this exciting new journey.
