Beautiful Custom Silk Garments
At Domenico Handpainted Silks, I am proud to offer a wide variety of handpainted silk accessories in Rochester, NY. I decided to combine my love of painting silk and designing fashion to create one-of-a-kind accessories and garments. To learn more about the products I have to offer, such as my handcrafted silk scarves, reach out to my office.
When making my pieces, I start by stretching two pieces of silk in a large frame. This lets me paint both pieces together, allowing the colors to blend naturally when they are sewn together. I also use unique designs when painting, following my own inspiration and ideas that I have. Once I am done painting, I have a Seamstress that sews the two pieces together to create a variety of accessories. Some of the garments I work on include:
When choosing the silk pieces for the garments, I always select silk that is already cut and hand-sewn on the edges so that I don’t have to cut the pieces myself. So, whether you are looking for a handcrafted silk scarf or a full-size silk cape, I am happy to make the garments that you need.
