one of a kind. beautiful, inside & out.  made to order.

i love modern art.  i love the music, mind & style of patti smith.  the 'modern folk' tie fits these two loves together.  if smith had modeled for modigliani, i imagine her infamous tie would come out looking something like this in his painting. 

the 'modern folk' ties are bold in color, modern in simplicity & yet looks & feels like an heirloom hand me down from a by-gone era.  each piece is handmade of a patchwork of naturally hand dyed organic cottonit's a beautiful accent piece to dress up your neck in a wisp of cloud-like softness.  each color is hand dyed in super natural botanical extracts & pieced together in a natural flow that results in an element of surprise & delight.  whether you wear it as a tie or wrap it around your neck as a skinny scarf, the 'modern folk' tie is a perfect balance of the feminine & masculine.

it's like baby clothes for adults...

simple. modern. timeless. well made to be worn well.

measurement:

approx. 60"- 62" x 1.5"

*please specify your color preference when ordering.

all my goods are made to order & each piece will be slightly different in color & pattern as all handmade & hand dyed goods cannot not be exactly replicated.  please inquire about other colors, color preferences/combination or custom sizing.

**Please note that all of my goods are hand made using recycled, vintage and/or new eco, sustainable, organic materials. I spend countless hours putting my love into each piece I create starting from hand picking the fabric, hand washing & drying, dyeing, designing, drafting & cutting the pattern to sewing, stitching, ironing....  natural dyeing is a very lengthy process involving days of preparation from scouring to tanning to mordanting & finally immersing in the precious botanical dye stuff.  the results are always surprising & the inherent beauty of natural dyed textile are the nuances of coloration that gives each dyed piece it's one of a kind, unique characteristic.  naturally dyed textiles are gentle on the environment whereby eliminating the cocktail of toxins associated with synthetic dyeing process but it is an incredibly involved & time consuming process.  naturally dyed fibers also fade with time & exposure to the sun can quicken the fading process so it's good to be mindful of hand washing separately or with like colors only when absolutely necessary with very gentle ph neutral detergents & drying naturally out of direct sunlight.  with vintage or recycled materials, there are inherent markings that some may consider "flaws" ~ I personally find that it's these beautiful little "scars" that give each piece it's own special character, imparting a uniqueness that I could not create with a perfect pristine brand new piece of fabric. I love the perfection of imperfection and I don't discard fabrics due to these "scars". Please keep this perspective in mind if you are thinking of purchasing any of my goods.
