Handkerchief and hair to suit for wedding

The good thing about being a craftsman is that sometimes you get requests that make you rethink things. Accustomed to the traditional scarves and handkerchiefs of painted silk, as well as lately the Silk hand-fans, when you get a man asking if you can make a handkerchief according to its design, it fills you with joy. And if you’re also satisfied with what’s done more.
The assignment was to make a pair of pocket-size handkerchiefs with the drawing of a paper bow tie to go elegant to a wedding. And you’ve been so kind to have sent me a picture, with the. The second was carried by his partner as a coordinated hair.

You can visit my blog on spanish to discover more design of handkerchiefs     or my online shop    to know which ones are available

silk kimonos

These three, two for woman, another one of man are something special. Not only for the silk and the chosen subjects, but for the love and care I have put in painting and sewing.

In his designs and elaboration I have put everything I like, are

  1. Silk Kimono, The three Geishas. Based on the e-ukiyo (Japanese xilografias)  the Japanese recorders of the eighteenth century.  I have painted three geisha, as did the great Kitawaga Utamaru.
  2. Silk Kimono, Africa. The colors and geometric patterns of the African tribes in the silk kimono made with traditional long sleeves for a man.
  3. Silk Hipari (short kimono) where I painted my vision of the “Tree of Wisdom” Gustav KLIMT

All three are available in my shop. Visit it and surprise yourself with the prices.

Summer and Fans

The summer is back, something scrambled with ups and downs of temperatures. But already Virgin of July is already here (15 July, Virgen del Carmen -The Virgin of the sailors-) that marks the beginning of the comeback of the thermometer that will follow until the next Virgin, that of August (15 August, Virgin of the Ascension) date in which it will begin to lower again the temperatures. It is curious how the ancient tradition and based on the observation of our ancestors is still maintained.

That same tradition that I create our best ally for these heats, the fan or as I say of joke, the portable air conditioning more ecological and economic of the world, since these exclusive start in €45.00 (shipping included). They are also beautiful as these photos show:

The stress of Christmas, Father’s Day and Mother’s Day has already passed.

And as many know, I do not just paint silks, I also paint watercolors. In these times besides making handkerchiefs, fans and other complements in silk, I have dedicated to make a series called “jazz” for an exhibition that will take place the next months of July and August in the Cultural Center and Museum El Portón.
