Artist Bio / Statement

My name is Amanda Shero and I am a self-taught fiber artist with a small business called Red Eft Designs. My main concentration of work is in silk shibori, which I learned using the books and products offered by Dharma (like Elfriede Moeller's Shibori, Karren Brito's Shibori and Adrienne Buffington's Hand-dyed Fabric).

I start out with rolled hem white silk scarves in Habotai, Crepe de Chine, and Chiffon in many different lengths. I then iron the scarves into tiers or other patterns and wrap them around a glass or PVC pole with heavy thread in an arashi shibori pattern. I dye my scarves with Procion dyes, mixing the colors myself, and steam the scarves with vinegar to set the colors and the pleats. Sometimes, I use a thiox discharge bath or discharge paste and more Procion dyes to add different layers of color. I use Synthrapol to wash out the dyes from fabrics, and Reduran to remove the dyes from my hands.

I also create shibori designs with FiberEtch on velvet and other Silk/Rayon blend fabrics, which I then sew into scarves and wraps. My work is available for purchase on my website www.redeftshibori.com and you can email me at redeftdesigns@buffalo.com.

About Tiered Discount Levels

You can combine cotton and rayon clothing & accessories to get the greatest discounts. Your discount is figured on the total number of cotton and rayon items we ship, not how many of each type, style or size. Mix and match them to get the best discount.

Example: adding 4 each of 3 different T-shirts in any sizes will give you the 12+ price on all 12 shirts.
