Gigi Matthews' Profile

About

Hello, I’m a Canadian from Vancouver but over the past 30 years I've been living in London, New York City, San Francisco, Montreal, and Sydney. Crafting has been my thing since I was little, but when I came across spinning it was love at first sight!
I’m trained as a herbalist, which is perhaps why I tend to use a lot of plant fibres. My materials are ethically sourced and I try to use recycled materials such as plastic bottle fibre and the denim left over from blue jeans manufacturing.

My yarns are on the eccentric side with a tendency towards showing the texture of the fibres. I am most inspired by textiles from Turkey and the Middle East, and my home is filled with rugs and camel bags and kilims full of rich texture and earthy colours.
