Welcome to kokodesigns and the work of silk artist Karen O’Kane.

My studio is based in the picturesque town of Ramelton in County Donegal in Ireland.

I hand paint silk using a cold resist technique, with the steamed silk I make unique and lovely things for the home, from lampshades, delectable lighting pieces and a range soft furnishings. My work is bright and bold and inspired by the flora and fauna around me in Donegal.

I specialise is making something which is unique and luxurious yet functional. I have my own collections in silk and also a range of my designs eco printed on bamboo fabric. I will also design and hand make bespoke pieces to suit your specific needs, this can be for your home or a commercial project.

    An original silk tableshade made from hand painted silk, available as a cone or tapered shade. Lockdown in March 2020 I planted wild flower seeds as I started the process of replacing our grass lawn and what came from it was just extrodinary and so inspirational for my silk paintings, resulting in the "Irish Meadow" collection.
