About

We are a premier weaving studio specializing in high quality, organic, luxuriously beautiful, hand-woven linen textiles for the home and personal use

Väva! Veve! is an artisanal handweaving studio specializing in fine linen textiles for the home, spa, yacht, and business. With an eye focused on beauty, while incorporating function, Väva! Veve! applies a unique blend of Old World techniques, including ‘pick-up’ weaving, damask and twill weave structures, and cold mangling, to create distinctive textiles with a rich and beautiful visual impact, and a high degree of practicality. *Väva! Veve! places a strong emphasis on quality and craftsmanship, utilizing the best of what the linen fiber has to offer, finding beauty in this natural sustainable fiber, while objecting to ‘fast fashion’ with its heavy use of petrol based fibers, or fibers requiring heavy doses of chemicals or water to grow. In keeping with these ethic s of sustainability, Väva! Veve! continues to weave product by hand on vintage wooden floor looms, one thread at a time, creating sumptuous bespoke fabrics. Their work can be applied to a variety of contexts, and they are available for design work and commissions.

*To further their ethics of sustainability, Väva! Veve! is actively involved in researching the growth of flax for fiber in the United States, finding local or at least same continent sources for milling machinery, and exploring the viability of blending various natural fibers with linen. Currently, the U.S. has no flax production for fiber at all. Because this industry left the U.S. completely, with the last flax mill closing in the 1930’s, it is an issue of highest priority to repatriate this industry, bringing a highly sustainable industry back to the U.S.

    As an interior designer I had a penchant for every beautiful textile around me. With hard work and study I eventually created my own textile line. Linen, once a royal fabric, captured my heart & never let go.
