All my fabrics are handwoven in my studio near Media, Pennsylvania. 2NewRoadStudios
My Swedish background greatly influences my fabric and garment designs. Long-lasting clothing that is well-made, comfortable, proper fitting and of the highest quality.
When creating my fabrics, I start out experimenting on a sample loom before setting up my warp on a 63” wide Glimåkra loom. After the fabric is off the loom it has to be washed and blocked in order to make the finished yardage “blossom”.
I use varied weight and textures of yarns depending on what I want to make; coats, jacket, vests,
shawls, scarves and hats. For warmth, I use
wool yarns. For lighter weight a combination
of bamboo, cotton, rayon, chenille and
occasionally silk fiber.
My fashions are styled along classical
lines making them useful for almost any
occasion. Easy to wear: go to the office,
casual use and good for travel.
