About

Handwoven wall art custom created in Montclair, NJ

My name is Jen Bonnell, and I'm the maker behind Kumquatmay Studio. I weave my pieces by hand in my home studio in Montclair, NJ.

I've been making items with fiber for what feels like my whole life. I'm a knitter, a spinner, and of course, a weaver. I've been weaving off and on for nearly 25 years, but after leaving my career as a children's book editor a few years ago, I've really started diving deep into the fiber world again, and reawakening my love for creating beautiful, tactile pieces.

My first pieces were made on a simple cardboard loom--which still remains a favorite option for creating my largest works--and I've since developed a collection of gorgeous looms from lovely independent makers.

I love to work with my handspun yarns, and mix them with commercially available fibers and yarns to create textural pieces that add warmth and charm to any home. I spin my yarns on drop spindles and with an electronic Hansen Mini Spinner, and often dye them in a range of soft pastels.

While I love creating pieces of all sizes, I particularly enjoy creating custom commissioned pieces for customers based on their own thoughts and visions of what they like. I am always happy to see what inspires others, yet I know the stress of decision making can be difficult! If you are interested in a custom piece, but don't know where to start, please message me, and I can help narrow down color choices, mood and feel, as well as practical concerns such as size and placement of the finished piece.

My past works are also on view at my website, www.kumquatmay.net, and may provide a good starting point. Because each work is unique, custom pieces can take up to 4 weeks to complete.

Frequently asked questions
Shipping

Ready-to-ship pieces will be shipped in 1-3 business days. I mail exclusively using USPS Priority Mail. Rush delivery may be available for an additional fee--please contact me for details. I am not be responsible for lost or damaged packages, so again shipping insurance is highly recommended.

Custom pieces can take up to 4-6 weeks to create and ship, depending on size. While smaller pieces may take less time, I cannot guarantee that they will ship earlier.

International buyers: Any additional duties, taxes or charges are the responsibility of the buyer and are not included in the item price and shipping charges.

Returns, exchanges, and cancellations

My goal is for you to be happy with your order. Please convo or message me with any questions or concerns you may have, and I will be happy to find a solution.

If you need to return an order and receive a refund, you must contact me within 14 days of receipt, and ship the item back within 30 days. The buyer is solely responsible for return shipping. Returned items must be in the same condition as they were sent to you, and I am not responsible for duty charges, lost or stolen items.

If you request a refund for a custom order after I have begun work but before it is complete, a 50% refund will be offered, and I reserve the right to relist the finished item at full price as a ready-to-ship piece.

Remakes

See something you like, but the size isn't right, or that color isn't quite what you had in mind? Send me a message for a quote. Please search my other items, sold items, my website at www.kumquatmay.net, and my instagram feed @jen_bonnell for inspiration for custom remake requests.

I cannot promise any one weave will be exactly like another, as each is woven freeform and unique, but I can certainly help provide something similar to a previous piece. I am happy to provide sketches, colorway suggestions, and any other information for requests!

Custom and personalized orders

I love creating custom pieces! Please convo me with what you are looking for. I can also create a custom listing for a specific sized piece. I can try to remake a previous work (though I cannot replicate exactly as each is unique), or you can suggest colors, moods, or send me inspiration photos, and I'll work with you to create an amazing custom weave perfect for your space. I am happy to provide sketches, photos of suggested color choices, etc.

All payment must be received before work begins on the piece. Custom pieces can take up to 6 weeks to create and ship. If you request a refund after I have begun work, a 50% refund will be offered, and I reserve the right to relist at full price as a ready-to-ship piece.
