Hand-woven Ikat and Stripes


Just added a batch of Foldover Clutches to the shop made from cotton stripes and Ikat that was hand-woven on a treadle loom in the highlands of Guatemala. Each pattern is unique and gorgeous. I have a limited amount of yardage left, just enough for a few bags and some more clutches. 


What are your plans for this weekend? I plan to work in my studio on some new ideas.  And if weather permits, we plan a drive or bike trip to the ocean. Maybe a seaside picnic. Wishing you a wonderful weekend. Enjoy!

I really love them - all the colors are so pretty!

We are off to the desert in about an hour for three days - to "the end of the world" near the Egyptian border, nothing there but stones and rocks and hills and sand and a wide sky and I little hut to hire - just peace and stillness, ahhhh... :-)
I am in love with the ikat fabric...So gorgeous!

The Pesky Cat's Day Dream

Katzenhohle by Dornroeschen Filzunikate I recently came across this incredible cat bed made by German artist Dornroeschen Filzunikate. This beautiful piece of functional art called a Katzenhohle , cat cave, is handmade of felted wool. It's definitely the most unique cat bed I have ever seen. It would bring a bit of nature into my urban NYC home. I think my Anni would love a cat cave although her favorite spots right now are the pillow behind my head in bed, a straw basket that was meant to store magazines and a storage box made from fabric that becomes a hammock when she sleeps in it. My sweet Anni FOX 5 Update : A while back I wrote a post about a story that Fox 5 news was doing on Etsy and the handmade market. I was interviewed in my studio as part of the feature. An Etsy press agent recently informed me that the story aired April 15th and he also missed it. He said he is trying to get a copy of it from the studio. I'll be sure to post a link to it when it becomes ava

Spring is Here!

To celebrate the spring equinox I decided to take the entire day off from working in the studio. OK, I confess I did sew one button onto an applique, but that's it! The rest of the day was spent bike riding, watching waves and smelling spring flowers wafting through the air. The weather was absolutely beautiful with temperatures in the mid 70's. No jacket required. Just a t-shirt and sunglasses. Hope you are all having a great weekend and enjoying the arrival of spring!
