Georgia Elliott is a British painter & printmaker inspired by travel & vast landscapes. She specialises in hand painting contemporary scenes, usually entire landscapes across each silk scarf . Interested in capturing a sense of place, Georgia gets excited about building texture & layered colour into each design.
Each scarf is individually hand painted in our Brighton studio using natural inks. Creating Fine Art you can Wear.
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 fibres and in producing the finished fabric. Fantastic news for the environment, production workers & your skin.
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 for our Stationary - Packaging - Fair-trade Silk - Natural Inks
As an Illustration graduate from The University for the Creative Arts, Georgia was was always keen to experiment with new crafts and techniques. One afternoon her Nan taught her the traditional practice of silk painting. Inspired by the idea of a new canvas, 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 with my 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 process of our image making.
Daub: to smear a surface, usually with paint or plaster. Dash: to apply roughly, as by splashing.
It was important that our scarves were both elegant & functional for modern living.
