VALUES AND PHILOSOPHY
I am weaving garments and textiles with natural fibre. In my designs I use my expertise and skills that I have refined in my art and fashion design studies. Focusing on sustainable and regional production and striving for good quality. Choosing a classic, unique design which doesn't change with trends but is created through exchange and communication with the environment to design textiles that are unique. Happy to take careful choices for every single part in the design to make textiles precious.
In general, we share the same skills to become good craftsmen, only the demand for quality and motivation leads to different ways. Good craftsmanship is my motivation and inspiration.
After very intense research I choose for weaving the Classic Scarfs and Stolas the Baby Brushed Alpaca fiber. Mauricio from Michell, the yarn manufacture in Peru helped to source this special yarn. The alpaca yarn is very soft and has very special properties due to the structure of the fiber which is hollow inside. The alpaca fiber is insulating, cooling in summer and warming in winter due to the special weather conditions the alpacas are exposed to. An amazing appearance of the Baby Brushed Alpaca Fiber, like a mohair and the sustainable standard, with a Oeko Tex Standard certification, convinced finally. The white alpaca fiber is undyed and only one of the natural fur nuances of the alpacas.
For the Sun Stolas I hand dyed the Baby Brushed Alpaca yarn with plants. I had a small workshop in dying by Chihiro from Mominoki Yarn in Berlin. I aim to collaborate with like minded people who share the same values and vision as I do. I collaborated with Chihiro who dyed the Baby Brushed Alpaca yarn and with Alice Albergaria Borges who dyed the handspun linen yarn from Portugal.
I believe in honest connections, conscious choices and respectful interactions with humans and nature.
