“My teacher of colors is nature. My job is to present the beautiful colors of nature through my artwork.”
In 1989, Min Chiu started making her hand-crafted gift and accessory items from her basement in Troy, Michigan. She sold her creations at many craft shows in Michigan.
In 2001, she founded Cathayana, Inc. to take her designs to US
tradeshows as a wholesaler.
In 2013, Cathayana, Inc. took on another challenge of hand making shibori silk scarves in its studio in Troy, MI. From the beginning to now, we have designed all our products in Troy, MI.
Our vision has not changed:
We strive to make products for our customers that are functional, unique, beautiful, and wearable. We are proud to have sold our products to many galleries, museums shops, boutique stores, and gift shop across the
United States. We also have retailer customers in Canada and UK.
