Our Story

Launched in 2021, The Silk Studio was a passion project which evolved from a Wedding Design and Styling Business, into a luxury and sustainable silk ribbon brand.

We say ‘our’ but really we refer to sole female designer and small creative business owner, Leanna. Running a thriving creative business as a solo entrepreneur is no mean feat. Let alone doing it alongside raising a little human (you’ll see her on our stories from time to time as she likes to help us with our deliveries!)

Leanna is dedicated to building a sustainable and inspirational brand which provides luxury silk ribbons and accessories, with a
particular focus on fellow wedding suppliers such as florists, stationers and cake makers as well as wedding couples themselves. Leanna recently delved into the realms of silk accessories and gifting, and is passionate about sharing knowledge and her love for natural dyeing and harnessing the beauty that nature has to offer.

The Silk Studio grew organically from Leanna’s Wedding Design and Styling business, Leanna Elizabeth Weddings. Leanna always loved styling, particularly for weddings and events. When her daughter was born, and the pandemic struck, Leanna embraced the changes and immersed herself in nature, where she discovered her passion for natural dyeing. Leanna searched
for a UK based business which not only offered sustainable and naturally dyed silk ribbons, but one which focused on the luxury market and found there was a
gap in the market. Leanna’s focus is to inspire and to encourage a community which values slow craft, one off luxury pieces and sustainability.

Leanna is a creative soul at heart and in her free time enjoys (somewhat badly) watercolour painting and spending time with her family and friends.
