“I’m very surprised there is a market for hand woven. It’s a real relief that it’s possible. I’d always hoped hand making was a form of luxury; that the skill, care and attention to detail that go into my products is valued. I really appreciate the amount of creative control that I have over my pieces because I weave them by hand.”
