Swathe and swaddle your inner secrets, and sacred and nurturing objects in their private spaces, with unbound lengths of fabric. Explore the architectures of light and form. Many weights, textures, and colors of fabric are yours for the choosing. No need to cut and sew..

Experience the essence of woven fabric by allowing it to hang informally. Generously loop fabrics over a suspended rod or a bough. Allow each fabric to drape and break according to it's unique weight, texture, and quality of construction. No need for cutting and sewing. Work with fabrics as you would a color palatte. Combine and layer. Play with placement. Discover the nature of an unadorned fabric's weave, and the beauty of it's selvages. Feel it's wholeness. Behold the intimacy and allure of fabric!
