These wearable art items have no seams. The felted cloth items and scarves are made of 100% fine merino wool and silk and recycled fabric and found objects with a touch of hand embroidery.
Wearing a Diane Lemire creation is a unique experience, since no two are the same.
Always faithful to the principle of recycling, each unique scarf is one of a kind. Diane Lemire scarves are made using a combination of 100% silk as a base and the designs of recycled fabrics such as ties and dresses. She has created a process of transferring the design of the recycled fabric to the silk using heat in the layup, thus eliminating the need for dye, giving her creations a Eco responsible touch. Finally, Diane incorporates felt and jewels to some of her scarves, creating a simply wonderful result.
