The Washington State Department of Agriculture and Industries is in the process of expanding its silk-themed shopping area at its Eastside headquarters, according to a department news release.
It will include a variety of items from the popular Silk City line of products, including a black silk pendant, and silk pami pajama tops.
The pendants will feature a floral pattern.
The department is seeking public comment on the project, which it hopes will allow the agency to create a more interactive experience for shoppers.
The project is part of a $100 million expansion effort that also includes expanding the office’s online shop and adding a new public address system.
In its announcement, the department said it is also creating a “digital and physical presence” for Silk City.
“We are excited to bring these two exciting initiatives together,” said Karen Bausch, director of state agriculture and industry.
The new departmental space will include the Eastside’s “snow palace” and the “salt dome” pavilion, a multi-level snow dome that opened in late June.
The snow palace, which was constructed in 2018, was designed by The Architects of Tomorrow, a Seattle architectural firm.
The pavilion will include several “pods” of snow sculptures, including the “Snowman,” a snow globe.
“The goal is to bring people together and give them something they can actually touch and feel and feel as if they are part of the building,” said Kim Wiens, president of the department.
The city has also opened the “City of Dreams” and “Snowcastle” snow sculptures.
