Why Organic Silk?
We are often asked what the difference is between organic and 'normal' silk, well the answer is, no nasty chemicals.
In a similar process to farming, organic silk production means that no harsh chemicals, pesticides or insecticides have been used in the production of the silk fibre and in producing the finished fabric. This is fantastic news for the environment, production workers & your skin. Its super soft & the perfect base to work with, creating stunning ethical results.
Our silk is certified with GOTS quality (Global Organic Textiles Standard). We believe that supporting fair wages & treatment of workers is essential to growing a sustainable & honest future for the fashion industry. Click here if you would like to learn more about GOTS.
We are proud to be using UK suppliers: Stationary - Packaging - Organic Fair-trade Silk - Natural Inks for painting
As an Illustration graduate from The University for the Creative Arts, Georgia was was always keen to learn new crafts and techniques. Luckily, her talented Nan taught here the traditional practice of silk painting. Inspired by the idea, Georgia developed her own unique print method which allows the scarves to be washed and began to practice her craft.
" The first collection was inspired after travelling around Iceland in a tiny Nissan Micra (above) with my new husband. We stopped at a different town each day discovering new adventures, people and breathtaking sights. The sketchbooks began to fill & the first collection had begun. "
The name Daubs & Dashes was borrowed from two painting terms. Together they summarise the daily process of image making in the studio.
To Daub: meaning to smear a surface, usually with paint or plaster.
To Dash: meaning to apply roughly, as by splashing: to dash paint here and there.
It was important that our scarves were both elegant & functional for modern living.
