About

Video summary: This video shows me taking a finished scarf off my loom before I fringe and wash it.

Swakrta: Swa(pna) welcomes you to her Krta (creations)

Handmade warm and cozy scarves. Bright and cheerful bags and accessories. Silky soft and cool stoles.

Swakrta offers all of this and much more!

I create all kinds of accessories, such as bags, scarves, stoles and more. I'm inspired by anything and everything; a colour that I want to try dyeing with or a pattern I see somewhere.

My bags and pouches happen because I find a design that I know I would use myself. The temptation to recreate it in fabrics and prints of my choice is irresistible.

For my Shibori scarves I use Habutai silk that I cut down to size. This technique uses pieces of wood, found items, clothespins, old CDs, anything that will resist the dye. As every piece of silk is tied by hand, no product can be identical. This means that every scarf or stole is unique.

Weaving tugs at my heartstrings, and I find the rhythmic to and fro of the shuttle and beater very therapeutic. Plus I love seeing the final fabric as it rolls off the loom.

I'm also happy to talk if you'd like me to create something customised for you. Send me a message!
