    Creating with Passion

    A few years after graduating from UCLA, while still working as a professional designer, I decided to take my passion for handwoven textiles to the next level. I designed a line of handwoven chenille upholstery fabrics & hired designer showrooms around the country to market my fabrics to the interior design trade. As the business thrived and grew over the next 2 decades, I grew restless and dreamed about getting back to my studio to make one-of-a-kind creations.

    In 2001, while still running Andria Senini Design, I created some wearable designs and a line of painted yarns. I sold the yarns online and quickly saw the potential and advantages of online marketing. I opened my store on Etsy in 2007, ended my upholstery textile business, and turned my focus entirely to creating wearable accessories.

    I'm inspired by a range of materials, and am always experimenting with the play of light on texture and color. I'm not one to stand still -- Each changing season spurs the evolution of creativity in my studio, triggering new experiments with color combinations and new ways of applying my techniques.

    Thank you for visiting, and I hope you'll come back every once in awhile to see what's new!

      Owner

      I turned my passion for fiber into a career. I grew it up to the biggest size I could manage, then decided my passion was fading as the demands of running an international business took over my life. So, I made a bold move & went small again.

    Welcome! My fiber art-to-wear shop features a wide selection of shawls, scarves, and unique accessories made of luxury fibers which are felted, hand knitted or woven to create unique art pieces to wear or accent your home. You can trust that every Vavoosh creation is entirely made by me. I hope you enjoy looking at my original designs and will contact me with your questions!

    ABOUT VAVOOSH WOVEN & KNITTED ACCESSORIES:
    My woven and knitted textiles gracefully and comfortably flatter the body. For optimum comfort and luxury, I use the finest fibers, chosen for softness and visual effect.

    WHOLESALE INQUIRIES: I do not use mass production subcontractors, and every item I make is one-of-a-kind.

    ABOUT VAVOOSH (KATSARA) HANDPAINTED YARNS
    My luxury yarns are painted in small lots, to achieve sophisticated, visually pleasing, rhythmic color transitions.

    COLOR: Colors may render differently on different monitors. I do my best to capture colors in our photos as accurately as possible. Guarantees of color precision are not offered. If a color is not to your liking, please scroll down to review the refund policy.

    CARE: Felted items may be gently hand-washed or dry cleaned

    REMOVING WRINKLES & RE-SHAPING: So long as they're never washed in hot water, felted fabrics can always be reshaped and/or steam-pressed to neaten them up. After washing in cool water and then blotting out the excess moisture by rolling it in a towel, the next step is to drape it over a smooth rod and align the edges. Then, holding onto both edges at once, pull it in opposing directions along the width, and grab the bottom edge with fingers of both hands to pull it downward against the rod. Then leave it to air dry. Once dry, you can give it a light steaming with your garment-steamer, or your iron on wool/silk temperature setting. (Note: If your piece is highly textured, hover above the fabric surface and avoid pressing the iron directly onto the surface.)

    WASHING ADVICE: Treat your item just as you would any treasured item: Soak in cool water & mild soap, and rinse cool water. Lay on a towel and gently blot excess water. Then, reshape & lay flat to dry. Once dry, items may be gently steamed with a garment steamer or with a steam-iron set on silk/wool temperature.

    Shipping
    SHIPPING: Made-To-Order items typically shipped in 12-15 business which include M-F (excluding weekends & holidays.) Seasonal demand may affect turnaround by a few days, so please inquire if you're purchasing within 30 days of a major holiday. Stock items are shipped the business day following receipt of your payment (this applies to items specifically described as "ready to ship.")

    International shipments are subject to each country's border customs agency and varying duties which are not under the control of the US postal agency. The seller charges only the cost to export your purchase, so please refer to your local postal service regarding any duty fees for your imported goods.

    ****INTERNATIONAL ORDERS****PLEASE READ!****


    All international orders are shipped via USPS First Class Mail. This gives you a tracking number and can take anywhere from 3-6 weeks depending on the package's destination. This is the most reliable international shipping method for the cost.

    All International orders are subject to duty fees and the length of time it takes to get processed by foreign Customs cannot be determined. (In my experience, some countries' Customs have taken up to 5 weeks additional time).

    Duty/Import taxes are the 100% responsibility of the customer. 

Please request to purchase insurance if you're concerned about loss or damage to your shipment. 

 Vavoosh is not responsible for items not received due to an incorrect address or due to mis-handling by postal agencies, since postal services of the USA and all other countries are not under the control of Vavoosh.

 *Vavoosh does not ship as "gift" because it's illegal, and potentially carries punitive fines. Thanks for your understanding.
    Additional policies and FAQs
    RETURN SHIPPING FEES: Shipping fees are non-refundable.

    REFUNDS minus shipping costs will be posted upon receipt of the pre-authorized return, within the allowable time frame of 1 week after authorization.

    LATE RETURNS: Pre-Authorized returns that exceed the allowable return time frame of 1 week after authorization will be refunded minus the restocking fee of 25%.

    UNAUTHORIZED RETURNS: Unauthorized returns are not refunded. (An unauthorized return would be one in which customer did not contact seller within the 48-hour window.)

    WAIVER OF REFUND: Refund options are waived if the feedback system is used maliciously in lieu of simply contacting the seller to simply resolve an issue in a civil manner.

    COLOR: Color is inherently subjective and variations will occur from piece to piece, photo to screen, digital image to actual visual perception, and across all organic substances, handmade and mass-produced products. Therefore, color perception, color desires, personal color preference, personal ways of describing color, and precise color matching are not grounds for special consideration or damages beyond the simple cancellation & refund policy described above.
