Barbara weaves and designs “Puzzle Coats” with a palette of luxury fibers including mohair, eco bamboo, silk and Inca cotton.
Embellishments of tapestry and the dyeing methods of ikat and shibori are among the techniques explored in the “puzzle-ing” textile design. Jackets are lined and then finished with an edging of related crocheted fibers. A variety of whimsical buttons-sometimes hand painted are added. The individuality of her clothing is enjoyed by women of all ages and sizes who must dress for a variety of roles — often in the course of a single day.
Barbara would be honored to create a custom garment just for you!
