Sari scarf options for June delivery

I'm working on getting your rewards ready... The image below contains the recycled sari scarf options for the first reward tiers, promised for June delivery. I tried to show both the main color and print and the border for each scarf option, where applicable. Please take a look!

Each of these scarves is made of vintage sari fabric. Some have a woven design in addition to the print, and some are just a smooth, soft, lightweight silk. Each scarf is approximately 40" by 20" in size. 

Keep in mind that colors on the computer screen are approximate, and that while I'm doing my best to show you a sample you would actually receive, due to the handmade nature of the fabrics I am using, each scarf will be a little different. So: each is unique and no one will have a scarf quite like yours!

Richelieu lace from Kalocsa

We've just received some samples of one of the decoration options for the blouse (kit or ready-to-wear), a variety of Richelieu lacework traditionally made in the Kalocsa region of Hungary. The designs are (of course) stylized roses; with slight variations in shape and in the center design. Each one is so pretty! (If we do say so ourselves...) We used an antique-linen-colored cotton fabric for the base, with matching thread for the lacework to give it a lovely vintage feel:

Embroidery samples for our blouses!

We just got in new embroidery samples - take a look - these are one (well - four) of the options for decoration on our blouse (both ready-to-wear and ready-to-sew). These are roses in the style of the Kalocsa region; choose your favorite color! Thank you for your pledges, each of you is bringing us closer to turning these lovely designs into reality.
