The

Ancestors/

Click on the left to check out  the growing list of techniques we research & explore.  Our ancestors around the world have laid the foundation of craftsmanship by problem-solving everyday dilemmas and dreaming up new ways of working with the plant & animal fibers around them. Weaving, knotting, crochet, dying and the many sub-categories of fiber craft were the collective result of centuries of shared tradition and experimentation through farming, herbalism, chemistry, and artistry.  We have endless awe & gratitude for the communities that have preserved their ancestral techniques and continue to practice age-old, intensive  traditional methods.
