DESERT COLLECTION, VOL. VI Drops Black Friday

DESERT COLLECTION, VOL. VI

_________________________________________________________

Just south of the Elfin Forest in San Diego, master weaver, fiber artist and teacher, Jean Degenfelder, is creating magic from her cozy mountain yurt overlooking Lake Hodges. For over 30 years, Degenfelder has been curating colors and patterns, weaving thread into gorgeous textiles and wearable art.

The American Art Festivals, Sacramento, San Diego, and Santa Monica; Contemporary Craft Market, Santa Monica and San Francisco; Festival of Arts, Tempe, Arizona; and Great Arts and Crafts Festival, Las Vegas, are just a few of the venues Jean has shown her work.

A few years ago, Eric and I started taking weaving classes with Jean, where we deepened our hands-on knowledge, appreciation and fascination for the art of weaving. We knew immediately that having Jean weave her imagination and creativity into a small, limited edition Sakura Bloom collection would be a dream. We met over the summer and fall at Jean's yurt and talked about weaving and our plans to travel to India with the kids - where to go, who to meet, what to do. We brainstormed ideas on colors, fibers, weaving structures... and slowly The Desert Collection started to take shape...

Five years later, and six collaborations later, Jean is still weaving her magic into Sakura Bloom.

The Desert Collection, Vol. VI. 40 carriers. 4 color ways. Each individually hand-loomed to perfection by Jean and stitched into carriers here in our seaside, San Diego workshop.
