Water-marbled silk pocket squares, created by Cindy Stalnaker -- The process -- I hand-dye these silk blanks in my Laguna Beach, California studio, using high-quality Chinese silks. Water marbling is an ancient process, and is based on floating drops of paint on a viscous water-based solution. Rakes and other tools are used to manipulate the colors into unique patterns. Once the pattern is created, it's transferred to the silk by dipping, then heat-setting. These are truly one-of-a-kind creations! I've added a page showing the process. All pocket square purchases include a gift box and an info sheet detailing how I do the water-marbling process.
Care of the pocket squares: Hand-wash in cool water with mild soap; do not wring or twist. Line-dry and iron on the reverse side, if needed.

Should your necktie and pocket square match? According to everything I've found online... NO! They shouldn't exactly match, but instead have colors that complement each other.
