Kylee Barnard botanically hand-dyes silk as a self-soother for stress and anxiety to empower women in the workplace.

When Kylee was young, she had a habit of rubbing a silk blanket on her face to ease her anxious mind. Her whole life she wanted to be known as a woman that embodied love, strength and happiness, but her anxiety was gripping her. She started to observe her behaviors, learned her triggers and what helped her cope. Recalling the comfort she felt from her silk trimmed blanket as a baby, she then utilized her passion for self-expression and color theory to create a brand of silk products that shine light on the issues women face in the workplace.
