About Silken Font Family
Silken is a stylish and contemporary handwriting font that combines the elegance of fonts such as Zapfino with the immediacy of handwriting fonts such as Affable. There are many handwriting fonts out there, but many of them border on being grungy and irregular. This font combines beauty with individuality and spontaneity.
Silken comes in a number of styles, the primary style of which is Silken Scarf. This style has a strength and sophistication that is particularly appropriate for headlines and short passages of text (such as invitations, certificates, greeting cards etc.)
Silken Thread is a variant of the font family that is even more delicate and polished than Silken Scarf.
The third style, Silken Book, with a greater x-height and less dramatic capitals, is more readable and less extreme than the other two styles. It should be used for longer passages or where readability is of primary importance.

About Scholtz Fonts
Scholtz Fonts, started by Anton Scholtz in 1997, specializes in "African flavor" fonts.
The foundry is based in Durban, South Africa, where the Zulu culture of the region has greatly influenced Anton's font design. In his profession as a graphic designer, he became aware of how few available fonts were suitable for African inspired design.
He began to create his own fonts to enhance the work produced by his design company, and this branch of his design work has grown steadily in recent years.
