Hand Crafted Couture Silk Flowers

We provide an extensive range of pre-designed flowers, leaves and butterflies.  All hand crafted in silk.

Hand crafted silk flowers were all the rage in the Victorian era but as is the case within the fashion industry, the requirement died out and along with it the skilled crafts people who made them.

Modern fashion has created a huge demand for 3D floral adornment on Bridal and couture gowns and as an embroiderer, it was a natural progression to be able to create these delicate embellishments.

Using traditional skills and collecting vintage tools over the years, the Maire Curtis Studio has developed practices to align with ecological standards and now prides itself in creating for a global audience.

Our Embellishments appear on couture designs as well as stage and screen.

Our dyeing processes are carried out in house utilising natural dyeing techniques, so we can create for any colour scheme.
