The art world crosses boundaries and gives deeper meaning to the basic and necessary objects around you. The work of Elizabeth Few is no exception. Few creates botanically dyed silk charmeuse goods that are destined to be heirlooms.
This coming Saturday, July 28th from 10am - 4pm, we are pleased to welcome Few to the gallery with pieces from her Leizu Collection. This collection is made from 100% silk charmeuse, each one-of-a-kind piece is hand dyed using flowers and other botanicals.
2,700 BC, the Empress Leizu was having tea under a mulberry tree in the imperial gardens when a cocoon fell into her cup and unraveled, revealing one of natures most miraculous gifts- silk.
A long kept beauty secret of goddesses, empresses and queens, sleeping on silk helps preserve youthful skin and luxurious hair.
Leizu bedding and lingerie has been featured in Vogue, Elle Decor and in goop and we are excited to bring this incredible collection to Greenville for a one-day pop-up! If you are interested in learning Few's process and would like a hands on experience, you can sign up for her class this coming Friday with the GCCA by clicking here and scrolling down until you see the headline Natural Dying and Floral Imprint on Fabric. It is sure to be an incredible event.
