How it all began...

I started by studying fibers in college. I was taught many different techniques for how to dye fabric and how to silk screen. After college I turned the third floor of my parents' home into a studio. For fifteen years I owned and operated The Carol Nesper Studio in an old school house in Little Italy in Cleveland, Ohio. I have since moved operations to my home. I split my time between teaching elementary school visual arts and making clothes.

Hi. Thank you for looking at my shop.

I started making clothing after I graduted from college in 1985. I was looking for a way to show off the hand-dying skills I had learned. I use a combination of shibori and tie-dye techniques. I dye large quantities of silk and then use smaller pieces of this to decorate garments. The cotton knit garments I use are all hand dyed by me before they are decorated.

Let me know if you have any further questions about my process.
