Silken Havoc was established in November 2016 as an online shop creating one of a kind, gender neutral, over-sized handmade quality knitwear. January 2018 Silken Havoc expanded our vision, launching our official blog centered around Fashion, DIY, Knitting, Travel, Inspirational content and more! As of January 2019 our YouTube Channel "Howl Carter" officially launched featuring our creator Howl Carter. Overall all we would describe Silken Havoc as a Creative Lifestyle Experience bringing new and fresh content to you.
African American male, Otis 'Howl Carter' Howell, Creator and Artist of Silken Havoc, breaks boundaries with his art, silken screen designs and knit designs, creating a variety of art work, hand-knit scarves and blog content. Howl has been an artist all of his life and a knit designer for over ten years designing a multitude of knit designs, gaining inspiration from his study of Studio Art in Florence, Italy and collegiate education in Wisconsin and his hometown of St. Louis, Missouri.
On all of our platforms, whether here on our website and blog, YouTube or Facebook; we strive to create positive, informative and inspirational content. While we encourage others to take part in the love of art and creativity, we aim to challenge gender norms, notions of race stereotyping and encourage free self expression along the way.
