Highland textile artist Monika is a gentle maker of delicate felt, considered printer and dyer of materials, and careful stitcher, whose desirable one-off pieces we always keep a changing selection of in stock.
Hand finished, each is a true original, and something special to luxuriate in.
Monika makes for us both wet and dry felted wearable and decorative items, sometimes hand dyed, and typically in the softest merino and silk fibres, to her own designs.
She carefully extracts pigments from leaves, flowers and bark, transferring them to natural fibres, aided by moisture, time and heat. This is a slow, highly unpredictable, but rewarding process, from which clothing and accessories in silk and wool are created. Monika's collection also includes lovely stationery made by the same process, resulting in stunning colours, marks and textures.
