Creating luxurious handwoven designs begins with the use of fine fibers. My weaving takes inspiration from nature, from the subtle palette variations of florals to those of seascapes and sunsets combining hues that blend seamlessly. Fibers are carefully chosen for quality with the predominant use of fine silks, hand-dyed Mongolian and Italian Cashmere, Peruvian Alpaca, and Organic Egyptian or Turkish cottons. Scarves and Wraps drape smoothly catching the light and reflecting subtle elegance.
