Peggy Russell - IRO Design
At Iro Design, we
believe in creating fashion trends, not following them. We have been
creating beautiful and unusual accessories for the home and body
since 1986. Bold patterns and colorful images are the
hallmark of our products.
Our Creative Process
People always wonder how we create our art. We produce each and every
piece by hand, thoughtfully and carefully, one at a time. We work with
hand mixed dyes on 100% silk fabric on cotton denim dropcloth, laid out
on long worktables. Drawing our images on to the silk, then hand
painting, carefully choosing and blending our dyes. The silk pieces are
heat set, washed and ironed and are ready to go as scarves or stitched
into clothing and neckties. The dropcloth, which has taken on the
patterns and colors of the silks, is re-embellished and crafted into
our bags and housewares.
"Art for the body and Soul" ~ everything is eco-friendly, no materials wasted.
