From hand-spun & naturally dyed yarn to hand weaving

Born in Munich, I have been living and working in Italy for almost 40 years, in an old farmhouse near the Castello di Brolio near Gaiole in Chianti, province of Siena.
My interest in weaving was awakened in me as a little girl when I got a children's weaving frame from my mother. Over the years, the passion for hand weaving grew. In 1980 I came to Chianti and decided to turn my passion into a profession. In our beautiful, old farmhouse I set up the first workshop. In 1991, the atelier TESSITURA a MANO was finally built in an outbuilding.
As a self-taught artist, it took me a few years to perfect myself in this old craft. My passion for this wonderful craft, which combines craftsmanship with creative design, has always grown. In the studio's workshop, I am currently working on four looms of different widths, one of which dates back to the 18th century.
The yarns used such as hemp, linen, cotton, silk as well as soft merino wool, mohair, alpaca and cashmere are of the finest quality and reflect the colors of the sky and the hills of Tuscany: ochre, rust, siena, olive green, but also bright colors such as orange, red, fuchsia, violet and others.
Most fabrics - scarves, stoles, ponchos, tea towels, bath sauna towels and placemats - are unique or small series.
