My style is a bit boho chic, vintage shabby farmhouse romantic, coastal beach, rustic mountain cabin, country home natural style, with a bit of zen minimalism, earthy back to basics simplicity to ground it all...

...Why Handmade, Why Handwoven…

It is about Living with Purpose and Consciousness of the things around me and the world around me, which we each do in our own way. I am a Weaver, others are Doctors, Lawyers, Astronauts or Auto Mechanics. It's about acknowledging the things in Life that really count, things that make you or me smile & our hearts sing when in action, or at rest. Finding things that center us, things we are good at. Then, we each can share this with others to make a better world. -Amy C. Lund

Weaving since childhood, I find order and rhythm in placing each thread in my designs and enjoy the feel of the textures of the fibers in my hands. I have an affinity for clean, simple designs which utilize and enhance the materials and techniques and bring them together - getting back to basics with an earthy rustic feel. My finished products have timeless classic style suitable for any traditional rustic antique - filled primitive vintage farmhouse, french country cottage chic, coastal seaside retreat, mountain hideaway cabin, contemporary industrial loft, or modern scandinavian - nordic urban home decor. It's all about how you style it!

I completed an M.S. in Textiles and Related Art from the University of RI and have studied and worked in several Art, History and Design Museums, demonstrating in historic settings at Shaker Villages and analyzing and managing collections behind the scenes. I have participated in many Artisan fairs over the years and have had my own Studio & Gallery in Tiverton, RI for over 15 years. My work has been featured in the Directory of Early American Craftsmen, in the Holiday collections of The White House, House Beautiful, Design New England, RI Home Design, Newport Life & Newport Life Wedding magazines, & has been sent around the world.

About

Artful Living & Natural Style with Artisan Woven Textiles

Handcrafted Quality & Natural Style For Everyday Living & Special Occasions

Why Handmade, Why Handwoven...? It is about Living with Purpose and Consciousness of the things around me and the world around me, which we each do in our own way. I am a Weaver, others are Doctors, Lawyers, Astronauts or Auto Mechanics. It's about acknowledging the things in Life that really count, things that make you or me smile & our hearts sing when in action, or at rest. Finding things that center us, things we are good at. Then, we each can share this with others to make a better world.

Artful Living is about taking the time and making an effort to live well and with purpose. It's a choice and a goal. I aspire to do this through my weaving and also hope to inspire others.

TECHNIQUE & ARTISTIC DETAILS: Each of my hand woven textiles is made with careful handwork and attention to form as well as well as function. Attention to detail and commitment to traditional artistry separate my hand woven textiles from many others. I work entirely with traditional hand and foot powered looms, not using computers to guide my patterns or mechanics to power the loom. Each piece is a test and display of knowledge of materials, technical skills, and artisanry.

From the beginning, materials are chosen, the threads are wound to the same length, dressed on the beam of the loom, the pattern is threaded meticulously through the eyes of the heddles and reed one by one and tied up in preparation for weaving. This establishes the base for the fabric, aligning the threads of the warp to create a ground. Planning for size, color, and pattern are established before insertion of the weft filler. Most pieces are hemmed and finished by hand, as well, to create a smooth, refined look.

PRODUCTION & DESIGN: Items are made one-of-a-kind, or in short runs. Items listed here in my shop are ready for sale as described. I try to provide a sampling of choices within a style until they sell out. I am not a production weaver, and do not wish to make 100s of the same thing. That is the art of the craft! Consider within reason if something really needs to be 1 or 2 inches longer or wider as you browse the items being offered. Use the search button or links within the shop to find similar items, which may be offered in different sections. Please contact me if you cannot find something to suit your needs. Special orders can be placed for specific colors, longer runners, sets of table linens, or larger area rugs.

COMMITMENT TO CRAFT: I commit myself to my work with my hands, my heart, and with my time as a full-time professional occupation, not as a hobby. In doing so, I compete with machine-made products to earn a living wage to survive in our current economic climate. Consider these pieces as works of enjoyable, aesthetic art as well as lasting utilitarian, working craft, and you will find the long-term values they carry can far outweigh some of the costs of things in your everyday environment that may be much more temporary or disposable.

Enjoy Artful Living with simple, sophisticated and stylish textiles. Hand woven textiles make unique gifts that give pleasure in the simplest of ways, highlighting holidays, celebrations and special occasions. Treat yourself, or give a gift that keeps on giving. I focus on classic patterns, colors, and textures that will fit in both traditional vintage or modern contemporary lifestyles and décor. Heirloom home decor furnishings, textiles, table linens & fashion accessories hand woven in natural cotton, linen, wool, alpaca & mohair, will last for years.

Frequently asked questions

Satisfaction

Each of my pieces is one-of-a-kind or limited editions, handcrafted individually. Variations in color, textures, and patterns are part of the natural characteristics of the materials and processes. (& quirks are sometimes natural characteristics of the artist, as well!) I take pride in my work and value the time I put into it and hope you will too, with the understanding that I am not a machine and things won't always be perfect.

I hope you will be satisfied with the items you purchase for years to come, as many of my other customers are! I have over 15 years of experience in business and have been weaving for more than 30 years.

Care instructions

Care Instructions are noted in Item Descriptions and on Item Labels. Some things do happen to textiles, just like pottery may chip; soiling, stains or fading may happen, just as a cutting board may show a few cut marks over time. I cannot control, animals, kids, husbands, weather, or other acts of time and nature. Sometimes, those same things add to our lives and show we are living it well, not afraid of using & enjoying the world around us, but interacting with it and with the material objects we choose to fill it.

Custom and personalized orders

Several things to consider for purchasing/ordering:
-Where are you going to put this piece? For instance, consider whether a table runner needs to fall over the edges of the table, or be used as a centerpiece (will a few inches in length or width really make a difference), if a rug needs to go under furniture, or only in open areas on the floor.
-What alternative size are you looking for? This will help me give you an estimate for the project.
-What is your budget? This may also determine size parameters, or materials.
-Do you have a picture of the room decor or furnishing item that you would like to compliment, or other color/style reference you could attach?
Ask for more info.

Other payment options...

I also can arrange Layaway Payment schedules for some items if that is more convenient. I understand that while some of my items may seem expensive for initial outlay, they are also an investment in quality goods that will continue to give years of practical use and aesthetic pleasure. Please contact me if you would like more information on this option.

Shipping & Handling

Generally items ship by USPS within 3-5 business days after payment, usually by priority mail, sometimes depending on expense.

Shipping & handling costs account for materials and time, as well as postage. Items purchased together will have separate shipping costs unless otherwise noted. Variables of shape, size, weight and value make it difficult and time consuming to have a numerous pricing scale per item and are reasons behind my standardized method as by many businesses.
