Tell us your opinion about our new website!
This new website of Colorsofellen went online on 27 September 2018.
The collection of Colorsofellen consists of products to improve your interior and products to wear. The collection is always developing and innovating its range of extremely fine silk scarves, woollen/silk shawls, curtains, pillows, wall panels, portraits, grand foulards and fabrics for clothing and interior.
Each product is handpainted or digitally designed by Ellen. This creates unique designs. In the webshop you will find items that are immediately available from stock and products that are made on order: choose a customised design for a special occasion, a party or an event deserving special attention or surprise a loved-one with a unique portrait of silk felted with wool. Every occasion will be coloured exactly the way you wish. Be inspired and see what you can achieve with colour.
If you would like to get to work yourself, this is possible in a workshop experimental silk painting. Check the possibilities, locations and calendar in Workshop.
Discover the creativity within you and learn about the surprising possibilities of silk-painting one step at a time. The workshops leave a lot of room for experimenting, so you will be free to endlessly get to work on samples of silk fabrics, or you can focus on creating a specific final product,...
‘What would life be without color?’
I make an instinctive choice for beautiful silk and after stretching out the fabric on a frame, I start painting with a brush, without a clear-cut plan or idea. Sometimes I use an airbrush and sometimes I combine different techniques. It’s as if the colours choose themselves as they fill the surface in random patterns. Working like this, I thoroughly enjoy the surprise of the result created by the many layers of transparent paint.
