Wild Silk

Wild Silk products are hand-painted, individually designed silk products celebrating the diversity and complexity of the natural world.  Although nature themes are predominant, Wild Ties designs also cover other areas such as hobbies (tennis, golf, weather watching) and seasonal designs (Christmas themes in particular), perfect for everyone.

Wild Silk designs specialise in producing commissions (for ties and other products such as cushions) of endangered species, carefully created to ensure that the taxonomic and identification characteristics of each species are clear and that the whole design reflects the habitat of that species.  Please see the Gallery for past commissions and for inspiration for your own design.

Wild Silk products are designed and painted by Emily Adams, an artist, conservationist and consultant based in Zurich, Switzerland.

Design process

Designs are created with input from the client – typically, 2-3 designs are worked up on paper, one of which is chosen and then adapted to suit the taste of the client.  This process can take a few weeks.

There are a set of ‘stock’ designs which are more generic but which retain the individuality of silk painting by hand, making them special.

Please see the Product Ordering page for details of costs, and how to get in touch to discuss your design.
