Established in February 2019, INGASILKS is founded by silk artist Inga Strause Godejord. She was introduced to painting on silk in 2000 when her focus shifted to this luxurious fabric.
INGASILKS satiates for a particular niche in fashion – hand painted silk apparel for astute women and men looking for an exquisite piece of wearable art. Every scarf is drawn free hand on 100% pure white silk, then painted using French Sennelier Tinfix Design Silk dyes. Steam-set for hours for brilliant and permanent color. Because the spontaneity is the key to INGASILKS creative process, no two designs will ever be alike. The medium provides a perfect process for interpreting the beauty and mystery of nature, and the body allows the color and imaginary to flow. Each scarf stands out as the ndividual who wears it!

Having lived in Norway and Canada for many productive years, Inga Strause Godejord now lives in Houston, TX, working in her home studio. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree with a concentration in painting. In Inga’s own words: “working with silk dyes gives me the freedom to create paintings that are vivid in color and sophisticated in detail.”
