Hello. My name is Silbia. I am a calligraphy and indie dyer. I run both House of Modern Letters and Camellia Fiber Company. 

I am inspired by organic designs in nature that comes with imperfection. A simple and minimal aesthetics has always brought me a sense of peace and I hope to pass this on in my work.

Interview

IF I HAVE A FREE SUNDAY I WOULD... be getting my favourite latte (Crema Coffee) with hubby. 

MY MOST MEMORABLE TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WAS... In NYC. It was a full three days of WALKING and eating at all the popular vegetarian restaurants. I never ate so much in my whole life. 

THE COUNTRY I MOST WANT TO VISIT IS... Italy

WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT MY JOB IS... there’s so many but mainly being able to be creative. Meeting other creatives and collaborating with them to make something far more beautiful. Seeing all the wonderful talents come together is so fascinating to me. 

IF I DIDN'T DO THIS FOR A JOB I WOULD BE... doing something with food and cooking. I enjoy cooking and even did my research on starting a food truck business.  

IF I COULD GIVE NEWLY ENGAGED COUPLES ONE PIECE OF ADVICE IT WOULD BE... it doesn’t have to be perfect. 

I LOVE WHERE I LOVE BECAUSE... of family and friends.

IF I COULD LIVE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD IT WOULD BE... Seattle. It’s in the middle of Vancouver and Portland. 

MY FAVOURITE MOVIE IS... The Notebook. Sounds a little cliche but dementia hits close to my heart and seeing hope through love is something so powerful to me. And something completely opposite: Django Unchained. 

MOST MEMORABLE MEAL I'VE EVER EATEN WAS... Catbird Seat in Nashville. Best vegetarian course ever. 

THE PETS I OWN ARE... my golden retriever, Lulu. She’s 13 and old now but she will always be my baby.
