I love the geometric patterns that are frequently found in textiles throughout the world. This bag was inspired by this geometry, and is accented by using recycled sari silk from India. Using a modified shibori technique, I’ve embedded white merino ovals amongst folded and layered Indian silk, which itself features a subtle geometric pattern. On this, layers of exotic fibers including top merino, Tibetan yak, bamboo, and more silk give the blue and purple colors of the silk an iridescent blue, green, and purple hue.

This wrap was inspired by the waterlily ponds I gazed at as a child in south Florida. It is fully reversible. One side reflects the cojoined colors within the water, including leaf green, flower petal brights, and gold fish oranges; the other side reflects the top of the water, with waterlilies, their pads, and swirling fish currents.
This nuno felted scarf is subtle and sultry, like a slow-moving current on a bayou in Louisiana, and might reflect what Monet would have painted had he visited the mysterious locale. The fibers include yak, silk, and merino on a silk gauze base; the different fibers lend a shimmery and luxurious texture to the piece, especially on the cream-colored reverse side. Yes, this scarf is reversible!
