I love learning new things, especially new ways to create. My curiosity and my love of learning are things I hope I will never loose sight of, no matter how old I get.
Last spring I got to try something I’ve been curious about for a while, jacquard weaving. Even though I struggled with understanding some the technical aspects of this method, it was still a lot of fun experimenting with different structures and yarns. I’m so happy that I can now design my own fabrics for a collection if I wanted to. Finding a weaving mill that would be willing to weave those designs however, is very difficult.
The images below are from my collection The Voyager’s Mementos. It was inspired by a a nomad traveling the world and all the marvelous sights and cultures they encounter. You can find more images of the collection under Works.
