TRYWA DESIGNS started up in 2007 in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, USA.  Trywa, a word excerpted from entryway, is an artist run business featuring access to a limited supply of items in stock or made to order original designs for silk scarves.  Print companies provide a finished product on 100% silk with machine hemming. Both the design and print formats are digital. 

A DESIGN PROCESS has evolved out of an interest in issues of scale. I love the sight of mountain ranges. As to my designs’ scale, my focus went in the other direction of mountains, zeroing in on patches from photos or drawing or working sets of designs. While some designs contain solid colors fully or in part, other designs are largely granular offering up a soft abstract look. I find the work process moving from something personal and up close to something that is universal in character.

The inks used are considered echo friendly and hold fast during washing. Wash all silk by hand in cold water along with a drop of mild soap. Place the silk flat to dry, or hang the silk over a rod to drip dry or roll up the scarf up in a towel gently pressing out the water. The silk responds well to steam ironing.
