Good Morning Kay,

I would like to thank you for my scarf. It arrived this morning and I was overwhelmed with your artistry. It exceeded my expectations,  absolutely beautiful.

I will wear it with pride ūüėä

Kind Regards,



One of the nicest things I bought for myself. I have also purchased five different panels for friends overseas. They love them.


I have bought a lot of scarves from Kay and they've all been special and much admired. However the scarf she created with pictures of my little poodle, Ruari,is even better than all the others. I love it! Kay has captured his expression and features perfectly and the colours she's used bring out his soulful eyes and the texture of his silky wool coat. This scarf is so special and I treasure it. It's such a unique way to capture your furry companion forever and everyone that sees it comments on how much it looks like him. It's such a wonderful idea it is to have a scarf made with a picture of someone who means so much to me. I can't recommend Kay highly enough. She's so talented and creative and takes time to make sure your picture is exactly what you want. As if that isn't enough, she's also a lovely, friendly person to deal with. This is a wonderful and really unique idea for a gift, or for something special for yourself. They're fantastic value for money, when you consider everything she does is hand painted on silk. In a world of mass produced, machine made products, to be able to have an individual, hand made work of art, is truly special. 


These adorable little Yorkies belong to my friend in North Carolina U.S.A. They are her "fur babies" and they mean the world to her. I had Kay create this scarf from some pictures my friend had given me and sent it to my friend for her birthday. To say she she was overcome was an understatement! She said it's "the best birthday present" she'd ever received. I love to think of my friend wearing her scarf on the other side of the world and how thrilled she must feel when people recognize her babies trotting along beside her. If you're looking for something that's unique and hand made, this is the perfect gift. Each commissioned scarf is completely individual and is created from photos that you supply. Where else can you buy a silk scarf with a picture of your special companion, that's been created just for you and at such an incredibly reasonable price? I love all Kay's creations and I'll continue to buy the commissioned pieces and the New Zealand birds, flowers and patterns for friends all over the world, knowing I'm giving them something truly special.



The Iris scarf is so beautiful. Bought it as a gift and now want one for myself too. Highly recommend!


I was instantly attracted to the colours on this scarf, but on arrival I was completely blown away. A beautiful vibrant luxurious addition to my wardrobe. Thank you so much Kay, for your skill in painting such a beautiful thing. Buy with confidence , treasure for life. This is my second scarf... Jaqui


Midnight Rose, such a beautiful hand painted scarf. Vibrant colours, and far more special than I imagined, I am so thrilled with it. Thank you so much. These scarves make lovely gifts and arrive nicely presented with an enclosed gift card. Buy with complete confidence from Kay.


Love my scarf

I bought this scarf a couple of months ago and absolutely love it. The skill and art work is superb. I have worn lots.

I love this scarf, it’s lovely and light with beautiful colours.


I recently purchased this outdoor panel to take to my 85 year old aunt in the Netherlands. It's the perfect gift for my aunt who loves her garden, yet has the plants all covered in snow during the winter months. We will be able to place it somewhere in her garden so she can see it during the winter. I hope it reminds her that the birds and plant life will soon be back in her garden. It is such a good painting of our NZ Keruru I'm delighted to be able to take this to my aunt who has never been to NZ.


I'm delighted with the Tui and Kowhai scarf. It's the perfect gift for my son's English girlfriend who hasn't yet been to NZ. It's so lightweight it will be easy to pack and take with us to the UK next month, and she can wear it summer or winter. And Kay's service is outstanding. It was a real thrill to receive an email from her to say she was about to begin hand-painting the scarf. The gift became a lot more personal with that message.

Beautiful Scarf

The scarf was a birthday gift for my sister who live overseas. She was absolutely thrilled with the colour and the artwork on the scarf. Diane

Superb Products

I ordered scarves and small wall panels for Christmas presents. All were of excellent quality and Kay a pleasure to deal with. All recipients were very happy. I would highly recommend these products and great service

Perfect Gift

I asked Kay to paint this scarf for a very special friend of mine for her 60th birthday. Sophie and Zoe as like children to her.  Both cats are getting on in years so may not be around too much longer. The scarf was just perfect and my friend was in tears when she saw it was her girls' faces on it. She said it was the most thoughtful gift she had ever received and would treasure it for the rest of her life.

Stunning Seashore Bird

I bought three panels in total and all three are stunning. They were exactly what i was looking for and looked even better in person. Kay was a pleasure to deal with and made sure the package was safely contained and arrived amazingly fast. These painting are sure to enhance any wall, tree, deck etc. Many Thanks Kay...


The grey and purple scarves are both of my Porscha - an 11 year old Maltese/Pekingese with character - Kay has captured her essence and I am truly grateful - they will be well treasured.

Tui/Kowhai Panel

Love the design of the boards, they are of high quality, and light up any place. Have dealt with Kay Satherley, and she is honest, and easy to deal with. Gitte Dibley


So impressed with Kay's attention to detail, the cushion is beautiful. If you are looking for something special I would highly recommend Satherly Silks.

MY Beautiful Bay

I commissioned this stunning scarf as a gift for a very dear friend. It's just as I requested, even more beautiful than anticipated. Kay listened, questioned and is so helpful. Thank you, Kay. Morag..


This blush rose pure silk scarf with hand painted dragonflies is so gorgeous. I was very happy to find it in my search for a nice gift to send to the other side of the world. It's special to be able to give a handmade gift made by a NZ artist. And it's easy to send, light and can't break. I didn't even have to send it myself, the international shipping was included, which was such a nice surprise.

Such beautiful Artwork and super service!

I was very happy to find this site,, in my google search for a nice gift for my relatives in Norway. When sending a gift abroad, it always feels best when I manage to find a gift from the country where I live. And when it's made by a local artist in my own city and also showing NZ native wildlife, it's extra special. The receivers, a young newly married couple, were so pleased with their gift. Jette

I am very happy with the vibrant colours and light soft fabric of the silk. This scarf is in fact a present - so I've yet to hear the recipient's comments. Thanks for the speedy delivery. It's very beautiful Mandy
