Designer Statement:

From conception to completion, my coverlets, throws, and accessories are intentionally designed to offer both bodily comfort and protection of the spirit, essential for our serenity and renewal.

I use heirloom quality natural materials and time-honored techniques, reflective of my cultural background. My textiles have what I call an “agelessly modern” aesthetic, that are beyond trend.
