Summer appears to be here in parts of Canada. But sometimes it is hard to tell as here in B.C. we have seen some beautiful sunny days supplemented with, rain, thunder and sleet. Canadian weather as usual :)
At the studio, we have beautifully handcrafted scarves perfect for any season! Lois Thomson was born and raised in rural British Columbia,
Lois grew up with a strong creative spirit nurtured in B.C. Wilderness. Lois has always been fascinated with the colours of nature and the textures of fibre.
As a young child, her art included the use of lichens and birch bark in her paintings and when she began sewing and designing doll clothes she experimented with the use of colour found in scraps of fabric, lace and ribbon.
Her pure silk scarves a totally West Coast and would make the perfect gift. Handcrafted on our Sunshine Coast
For a slightly cooler evening or day, then Arl Law hand weaves scarves from Rayon and Chenille.
Arli's beautiful scarfs are woven completely by hand. They are very soft to the touch and are warm & cosy to wear.
A large range of colours are available. Wash with mild soap; add fabric conditioner to final rinse. Hang to dry. Hand Made on Vancouver Island
All of these beautiful scarves are available at the studio in Oak Bay or online See more at Side Street Studio
