We have added skinny neck ties and bow ties to our neck tie collection. The bow ties have adjustable neck bands with clasps, and may be self tied or bought pre-tied. Let me know if you need specific colors for special occasions!
New work! Men’s neckties that are hand cut, sewn and dyed in yummy colors and unusual designs. Small zippered hand dyed and hand marbled silk pouches with hand dyed cotton linings. A candy store of colors and designs! More sizes coming soon.
We have just posted our first Facebook page! Visit us on Facebook at facebook.com/antrimstreetstudio to see sneak peeks of new designs, special sales, and news about shows.
We have created a booklet of ten ways to tie scarves, with lovely illustrations by Justine Silva. These are free with a scarf purchase.
I am pleased that the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts, is selling a large selection of my scarves in their award winning gift shop. They chose designs and colors to coordinate with a beautiful Ansel Adams exhibit, with many never-before-seen photographs, all with images of water.
I am happy to announce that we have recently added solar panels to our roof to heat the water I use for dyeing scarves. We installed solar panels for electricity over five years ago, and in that period of time we have taken one fifth of the electricity from the grid that we had previously used. Our reduced use of conventional energy is due to a combination of the solar panels and energy conservation. If you have questions about this, feel free to contact me!
