Pre-order - Ivory Swan Lake Embroidered Marianela Eye Mask
Swan Lake embroidered silk eye mask
Kate Gwilliam and Mille Saisons have teamed up to bring you a limited collection of embroidered silk accessories inspired by the classic ballet Swan Lake.
This eye mask features two graceful embroidered swans in white and silver under a moon.
Your eye mask will be embroidered to order by Kate before it is sent to Jo to be turned in your finished accessories. Pre orders will close on 7th June and your headband/eye mask will be ready to be posted out to you between 16th June and 7th July.
Mille Saisons' silk eye masks use a double layer of cotton padding before each mask is then handstitched closed and packaged in tissue paper and a gift box.
Kate uses a vintage Singer 102w107 sewing machine to create her embroideries. This is commonly referred to as an Irish Embroidery and Kate’s machine is called Suzy. Each embroidered piece is created entirely freehand on the machine, using the needle as her pen and moving the fabric around to create the design, the machine is particularly special as it has a knee pedal, as well as a conventional foot pedal, which allows Kate to adjust the width of the satin stitch as she is sewing. Doing this type of free motion, free hand embroidery means that each one has slight differences which make them even more unique.
