Hello! My name is Shelley Barton and I have been dressmaking for over 17 years. I come from a creative background of dressmakers/artists and have always spent a lot of time either in my sewing room crafting or painting water colour art work.
Silken Twine Australia was born from my three loves combined, painting, sewing and graphic design.
I am located in the South West of Western Australia and work from my spacious home studio fitted out with four sewing machines, art supplies, laptop and graphics design tablet.
Inspired by Australia's unique and fascinating native treasures I love to paint in water colours, Australian flora, fauna and sea life and am lucky enough to have the skills to turn my paintings into beautiful fabric designs which I then sew into lovely scarves and cushion covers. These make fabulous gifts to take overseas, for tourists to take home and are also wonderful as a gift for Mum, Grandma, Aunty or anyone who loves our wildlife and native flora. Tastefully displayed in earthy kraft coloured packaging, these make giving a little piece of Australia to a loved one easy.
My scarves and cushion covers are made to order and lovingly hand crafted, designed and packaged in my studio in Western Australia.
Wholesale inquiries are most welcome!
