American weaver in Sweden with an interest in the technical aspects of the craft.

Most of my current work falls under the concept of a "wholly handwoven household" [helhandvävt hushåll]. These are workhorse textiles, brukstextilier, meant to not only be used but to be dirtied or used until threadbare: dishrags, aprons, bathmats. They are objects most of us switched out for machine-woven long ago.

I want both the object and the process to be freed from their preciousness.

Grounded in the idea that using handmade textiles is the best way to show respect to both the work and the craftswoman, the Wholly Handwoven Household is a collection of handwoven, luxurious objects made to be sullied and worn.

I am a founding member of Studio Supersju, an ateljé established in 2016. We are seven weavers devoted to the future of weaving in Sweden.
