There are many joys of living in China and one of them is having access to the wonderful colors and patterns of Chinese silk. For the past 10 years or more, I have been scouring the local markets to find silk stalls with rolls of beautiful cloth that usually come from Hangzhou (the silk capital of China). Often when I return to the same place, they have either closed down or moved elsewhere so the search for silk is continuous.
Beautiful rolled up silk with different patterns and colors
I recently found a new stall with lots of new vibrant colors and designs and had them made into prayer covers. I’ve updated all the covers on the website (as most of the old patterns/colors were no longer available). They are now all in stock and on special sale for $9 each (instead of $12) from now until the end of Ayyam-i-Ha (March 1, 2014). Here is a link to the prayer covers on the website and another link to many more colors and designs on my Etsy site. Below are a few photos of the new prayer covers. A big thank you to many of my friends who helped in coming up with creative names for the colors!
