Each year, we release special one-of-a-kind collections, handmade in limited quantities by our own local master weavers. The colors and materials are chosen by the weavers themselves, making each creation personal and unique. All pieces are handwoven on classic wooden looms, as we've done since 1968.

This limited edition Mohair & Silk Cowl is simple and elegant, pairing nicely with the rest of your wardrobe. Pure South African mohair and exquisite Japanese spun silk are handwoven to create an overall beautiful textile, extraordinarily soft and lustrous. Wonderfully lightweight yet warm.

For a simple refresh, a little time in the fresh air will breathe new life into your beloved wrap. Mohair has a natural wicking, protecting the fiber from moisture and other elements and allowing air to breathe through. Leave your throw draped on a clothesline for an afternoon and enjoy a refluffled & revived blanket.

Crafted by hand from start to finish in our Main Street weaving studio.

Our masterful artisans begin by thoughtfully selecting colors and fibers inspired by our surrounding landscape, then determine a pattern and desired weave structure for their design.

Next they wind the fiber onto bobbins then wind the loom’s warp, a meticulously calculated process that sets the path of each and every thread used. These threads are manually connected to specific harnesses and securely hand-tied to “dress the loom”. Once this stage is complete, they can begin to weave.

Countless passes of the shuttle commence, rhythmic, muted sounds of wooden pedals fill the studio and a beautiful textile begins to emerge. The handwoven process continues until the piece reaches its full length, at which point it is cut from the loom. Tassels are hand-knotted onto the ends, and a small label is hand-sewn onto the textile as the weaver’s final touch.
