With just two weeks left until our Mayesh Design Star Charleston workshop, we wanted to give a little shout out to one of our vendors, Adorn, who will be proving beautiful silk ribbon for all of the attendees’ bouquets. Here’s a little background on the Hawaii-based company:
Adorn is a handmade textile and fine art line founded by floral designer Mandy Grace and artist Nichola Moss. Their debut raw-edge silk ribbon collection was born out of an innocent curiosity. As a painter, Nichola had recently explored using silk scarves as her medium. Mandy was working in her flower studio alongside her mother-in-law and noticed an ethereal piece of silk stretched across an artist canvas. She asked Nichola if she had ever considered dying silk. The pair thought, let’s try.
Adorn merges art and nature, offering beautifully simple and organic adornment for wedding flowers and décor. As a florist by trade, prepping wedding bouquets, Mandy found a continual five yard run of ribbon yields the least amount of waste. Each shade is dyed by hand, giving the ribbon a soft look and feel. The color variations contain subtle differences in tone, making every spool of ribbon unique.
Adorn now offers nearly 40 gorgeous shades of silk ribbon and a collection of gauze runners made of 100% natural fibers in eight soft hues to drape across a wooden farmhouse table at a dinner party at home or intimate celebration in nature. In 2017, Adorn debuted their line of textured wooden styling boards to satisfy the need for beautifully moody photo backdrops in the fine art film community.
Made locally in Hawaii.
