| We fell in love with Jan's scarves when we first saw them at the American Craft Council show in Atlanta. The quality, craftsmanship, artistry that goes into each one is amazing. We keep a good supply in our gallery, and they fly out the door. Most people end up buying several, some to keep and other to give as gifts.
| To Jan Mayer:
We can't thank you enough for the beautiful scarves you re-created for us! They arrived in time
for our big choir performance we had earlier this evening. Everyone admired them, especially
when I explained what you had to do in order to make them. They couldn't get over how you
matched them with our previous ones, even after having discontinued them. You really went
above and beyond! We will be using them for years to come, enjoying the artistry and
appreciating the effort that went into them.
I wish you continued joy and success in your work.
All best wishes and many thanks,
Cantor Mikhail Manevicha
| I wore my swirl scarf yesterday and I had so many compliments and will wear again when I need another uplifting experience. LOL
I purchased mine after the Winter Park, Florida Art Show many years ago, actually saw them there and didn't purchase and called and purchased after the show.
It is such a beautiful accessory.
|Many years ago, my favorite purchase at a craft show was a Kriska scarf with matching earrings. The painting on silk was gorgeous. The colors so vibrant and beautiful. This set is my most favorite accessory. I receive countless compliments when I wear them. Recently I checked out the Kriska website to find a beautiful pair of pink fan silk earrings which remained in stock. Thank you, Jan, for producing these fabulous scarves.
|The scarves are beautiful - and
(N. Wisconsin) I had bought one of your scarves and could not
remember where I bought it. But it felt like most of the time I got
"dressed up" last winter I wore it. Could it have been in Montreal?
Then, strangely enough, several weeks ago I went to a wedding on
Madeleine Island (Lake Superior) and my scarf blew off and into the (we
call it in N. Wisconsin) "Big Lake." I could not remember where I had
bought it or how to replace it, and since it was my favorite scarf, I
was crushed and just decided that in the wider scope of things it was
not important (but it was).
Quite coincidentally recently I was cleaning up my "Favorites" on the
internet and came across a site called Kriska. I clicked on it out of
curiosity and there --- believe it or not ---- were the scarves. I was
thrilled and disciplined myself to only order the one I had sacrificed
to Lake Superior.
The scarves are beautiful - and really useful. Thanks for making them.
|The scarf still makes me smile!
(NYC) Good Morning from NYC....
I wore your scarf the other day and just wanted to tell how how
much I have enjoyed wearing it through the years. A long time ago I made
the purchase at a Craft Fair and never regretted that day. Do you
remember creating an oblong scarf with vibrant colored leaves at the
ends? The background I chose was a muted pink/salmon but I also fell in
love with the champagne background as well. It was a big decision back
then and I could only purchase one. The scarf still makes me smile and
brightens my outfit and day.
Thanks for sharing your artistic talents.
(northern virginia) The seller was extremely quick to reply to my
request for a gift card to be included with the order. They followed up
immediately and the scarf arrived within days of the order. The scarf is
lovely and I'm extremely pleased with the entire shopping experience. I
heartily recommend this seller

I have admired Jan Mayer's Kriska
line for years, and I own several of the ties he used to make. My wife
also owns several of the scarves. Mayer is a true craftsman, deeply
committed to quality and excellence in everything he does -- materials,
color, and design. When you buy one of his products, you know that you
are going to get something rich and unique -- unreproducible, in fact,
given the painstaking and innovative process of creation that he uses.
His work has deservedly won awards all over the country (maybe even the
world). In fact, when you look at the scarves up close, they are so
interesting and rich I can imagine seeing them framed on a wall some day
-- although they probably do even better as living art. I think Mayer's
single-minded emphasis on beautiful, individual works is eventually
going to pay large dividends. This is because, despite mass marketing
even in high-end clothing, people are irresistibly drawn to more
personal, expressive work. Good stuff -- and, if you are a man reading
this, believe me, the woman for whom you buy it will be happy...
lover, "Bev" (Cape Cod) I purchased 3
Kriska scarves 20 years ago, and they look as beautiful today as they
did the day I bought them! I wear them all the time, in all different
ways, and constantly get compliments on what a beautiful scarf I have!
Thank you Kriska, for making my wardrobe so vibrant!!!
|High Quality Handpainted Silk!
Sam R. Hansen (Bellevue, WA
USA) I have purchased several
of these Silk Scarf's at the Bellevue Arts & Crafts Fair near Seattle
Washington. The quality and design of the products are exquisite. Their
were several other vendors that sold the same products, but Kriska
outshined them all. Materials are second to none. The display and
presentation of the products were by far the best. I would encourage
anyone who is interested high quality Handpainted silks to consider
|The perfect accessory!
(Carlsbad, CA) Kriska scarves are the
perfect accessories! The colors are varied and vibrant and blend with a
multitude of garments. Because they are made of silk crepe de chine,
they are full-bodied and fall beautifully, conforming to any curvature
or angle. I consider each Kriska scarf that I wear to be the focal point
of my ensemble and coordinate every piece of clothing around it. Every
time I wear one of them, I get so many compliments about its uniqueness
and beauty. To me the best part about the scarves is that they are
personally designed and Handpainted and each is a work of art unto
itself-a superb example of its creator's talent!
|Even more stunning than the picture!
(Denver, CO) I had the good fortune
to purchase a Kriska scarf some years ago at an art show, so I was
thrilled to see them available again at Kriskascaves.com. The elegant
quality of the silk is obvious at first touch. The colors are stunning
in their vibrancy, the workmanship impeccable in every hand-worked
detail. These pieces are worthy of art museum status, but inexplicably
priced as bargains. I will be stocking up this time, before they
|Kriska silk scarves,
(Charlotte, NC) I have purchased
several of these wonderful classy scarves. They are of excellent
quality, genuine silk, and are great accessories for the right outfit.
They are definitely good for the more formal look.
|Beautiful, hand made silk
scarf in vibrant colors!
CA) I have worn several of the Kriska
hand made silk scarves for many years (my first scarf goes back to over
10 years ago). Each scarf is unique, and goes well with both dress and
casual wear. The colors have remained vibrant,and the high quality of
the silk is such that they look brand new, even after many years of
enjoyment. I wear these scarves year round and find they also travel
well. I can highly recommend the Kriska range for anyone who appreciates
beautiful and unique silk scarves.
versatile scarf you will ever own!
Lady (New Orleans, LA) I
bought my first Kriska swirl scarf last summer and I get so many
compliments on it. People talk about the richness of the color and the
unusual shape. It truly does what the ad says- adds panache to any
outfit. And with an all thumbs person like I am, it is great not to have
fo fuss with special ways to tie it. It looks good no matter how you
wear it from just tossed on casually or tied in a loose knot. It drapes
into beautiful folds that make ME look talented. I love it!
