I discovered a beautiful picture of a Nuno felted silk scarf on the internet several years ago. I began researching the art form. I found an instructor and took her beginner Nuno felted silk scarf class. The minute my hands felt the luscious fibers and fine silk, I was hooked.
Each piece I design and create includes a piece of my heart. I love the entire process, from dyeing the silk, working the fibers into an artistic design onto the fabric and seeing the fibers & silk become bonded into one.
I hope all who wear my creations will wear them in good health and may your piece bring you much pleasure each time you wear it.
Each Elaine Haag Design is an original, custom, wearable art by the Nuno felting process. Nuno felting combines fine silk and natural fibers: merino wool, mulberry silk, flax, bamboo just to name a few. Using water, soap and hands-on agitation until the fibers bond to the silk creating a magical transformation. Nuno felting has become a passion in this fibrous chapter of my life.
I put a great deal of thought, energy and heart into creating an eye-catching, luxurious fashion statement. I want the people who wear my designs to feel spectacular and know they will not see another piece exactly like theirs on anyone else.
My desire is to share my Nuno felt passion by creating high quality, lasting pieces for many to enjoy.
