Cara DeHeart started working at Nantucket Looms as an intern in the weaving studio under Master Weaver and current partner, Becky Peraner, 20 years ago. She took to weaving masterfully and garnered a talent that has manifested into her own brand, Seaweaver Studio, creating bespoke blankets, apparel and accessories. Additionally, she continues to produce handwoven throws for Nantucket Looms, bringing in large, plush piles of blankets on a weekly basis. The other weavers call her "Yoda" in reference to her exquisite mastery and knowledge of all fibers. There lies a beauty and certain mystical grace within every movement Cara makes at the loom; a beauty that is inherent in everything she makes.
"Cara and I have always had a sister bond, me being the big sister. Having watched her grow up and grow creatively, I am so proud of her and what she has accomplished. When she weaves for us, she understands our style and our brand; but when she weaves for her own art, I can see her personal aesthetic really shine through."- Becky Peraner
