Welcome to Belly Dance Silks!! My name is Kathleen Sigmon and I am the owner/sole employee/web designer/wearer of many hats at this little store. Belly Dance Silks is a home-based operation located in Port Charlotte, Florida, on the Sunshine State's gorgeous Gulf Coast. Back in 2009, my business endeavor began with the simple decision to hand dye a few veils. From there on I expanded to include costume apparel. I loved the colors, styles and excitement that I felt when shopping for new belly dance clothes and wanted to be a part of that experience for other dancers.
I hope that you will shop the Belly Dance category to create your beautiful and individually unique dancing costume. I am pleased to offer products for belly dancers of all skill levels. Whether you are a student dancer just embarking on your journey or a seasoned dance professional, I welcome the opportunity to fulfill your costuming needs and make your belly dancing experiences beautiful, fashionable, and enjoyable -- whether you are performing in public or practicing in your home or studio.
Shop the Silk Veils category to complete your costume with a vibrant and deliciously, beautiful silk veil created by Me! I started belly dancing and before long my love of the dance inspired me to create my first veil. Before long I was dyeing veils every night while my husband slept and selling my very own products to my friends and fellow dancers. I love dyeing the silk, playing with colors, manipulating the fabric, and generally getting colorfully dirty with smears and hand prints. I hope that you will love my silk veils just as much as I enjoyed making them.
COMING SOON: Shop the Silk Fashion Scarves category to find silk scarves of all shapes, sizes, patterns and color combinations. My silk dyeing passion has now grown to include silk fabrics on a small scale. Each scarf is individually unique and my hand-dyeing techniques are an experimental combination of tie-dye, shibori, dip-dyeing, vat dyeing, stamping and painting. The type of silk, momme weight, and approximate dimension of each scarf product will be in the product description.
On the business front, Belly Dance Silks has two main goals that I endeavor to meet and exceed at every opportunity:
#1 ~ Provide first-rate customer service, from order placement to product delivery.
#2 ~ Supply quality belly dance costume products and custom silk creations that I am proud to wear and use myself.
