About Us

Patricia DiSantis is a Connecticut native and a graduate of the University of Connecticut.  She particularly enjoys sharing the art of water marbling and teaching it at workshops.  

Rich Borden is from New York originally and is a graduate of Brooklyn College.  

Shibumi Silks has won numerous awards and monetary prizes for their beautiful water marbled silks, silk tapestries, men’s silk ties and bow ties!  Their distinctive designs involving dyeing techniques and water marbling are unique.   These designs have caught the eye of galleries and museums who are excited to showcase them.

We participate in art & craft shows where we allow our customers to make their own water marbled silk with our hands on instruction.  Along with our beautiful silk collections for women, men and home decor, our booth is very engaging!  

We do workshops at local galleries and in our East Haddam CT studio.  Private parties can be arranged for corporate events such as Holiday parties, team building events at your location and ours.  We have done wedding parties as well.  Please book early!
