One morning a few years ago, out of the blue, I woke up and decided to buy a loom. I taught myself to weave on that first rigid-heddle loom, and quickly upgraded to an 8-shaft floor loom so I would have more options for high-quality fabrics.

Now, I weave and sew elegant home decor that is made to last – like tea towels and table runners – and stylish, chic accessories, including scarves and shawls. I love using high-quality organic materials and time-proven techniques, but with a modern sensibility. It’s important to me that the things I make last a long time. I don’t ever want to make anything that’s disposable. Even dishtowels can be heirlooms!
