CHANGE THE GAME
Experience a world of modern iconic style available exclusively from the Erin Bassett Artistry collection. The silk designs are wearable art as well as conversation pieces, commanding attention in any setting. Stunningly bold and feminine, the collection is a creative re-imagining of an ancient Japanese technique fashionably vivified through Bassett’s ingenious signature style. Change the game — it begins with you.
The creation of Erin Bassett’s silk Shibori wearable art pieces is the result of skillful and focused artisanship. Bassett’s artistic journey begins with rolls of 100% silk Shantung fabric sourced from India. Silk sections are cut, ironed, and hemmed before being wrapped around various metal and glass objects, then secured tightly with rubber bands. The unique shapes are made permanent through a heat set process which also allows for variations in color. Once the pieces are dry, the rubber bands and objects are removed to reveal a beautifully textured and dimensional work of art — an Erin Bassett original hand-made in the USA.
