Welcome.

So Glad you're here! A little background first...

I'm Nicky, and this is my little creative side-hustle. I've become a little obsessed. I hope you can see why...
Isn't it gorgeous? Reminds me of flavored shave ice. But you don't want to eat it!
I create handmade, one-of-a-kind dyed "threads"- Women's and children's clothing, accessories and home goods. I also run socially distanced workshops outdoors at my home in Orinda where I share the love of this awesome process.
I use highly pigmented fiber reactive dye powder which produces vivid, mouthwatering colors that are colorfast and long lasting.
The best part is that no two pieces will ever be identical, so you wind up with wearable, or useable ART.
This is where the magic happens!

So Let's get started.

The following are groupings of color families. Within the color families, I have curated beautiful mixes of fiber reactive dyes that produce the most amazing patterns and color compositions. Each of these is inspired and named after places in the beautiful state of California, where I have the good fortune to call home.

While each piece is made with love and the utmost attention to detail, the magic happens because it is under no one's control. As the ice melts, the tiny rivulets carry and bind the gorgeous pigment into the fabric in original patterns... the results are serendipitous and one of a kind.

If you click on one of the buttons, you will be redirected to a page that has examples of pieces that have been dyed in that colorway. If you don't find something that speaks to you, I'm happy to collaborate on something different - just for you.
