As weavers and designers we are inspired by the sheer luxury of the softest merino wool and cashmere, the coolness of linen, the springiness of local sheep´s wool. We also feel more comfortable knowing that our yarns are top quality, coming from natural, renewable sources. Each natural fibre has a character of its own and we hope to enhance this in our textile designs.
Our most precious hand-woven scarves and cushions are hand-dyed by us using natural dyes. These are a true labour of love, using many local dyeplants and cochineal sourced direct from Canary Island farmers. These dyes give us full traceability.
Like many colour experts we also believe that natural dyes produce unsurpassed and harmonious colour – from the vibrant raspberry, salmon and burgundy colours of cochineal to the subtle earth tones of oak bark, chamomile or walnut.
Planet-friendly quality also applies to the Louet looms which we use in the studio for sampling and hand-production, being made from sustainable certified sources of wood. The weaver´s feet still work the pedals and each row of yarn is carefully guided into its place in the fabric by the weaver´s skilled hands
