What inspired you to go into the craft business, do you still have a day job? I was inspired to start LOOMLAB in order to create a unique and modern collection of scarves. The name LOOMLAB came from the idea of combining technology and experimentation with fashion and textiles.  This lead to my first foray into scarf design.

Fashion is both emotional and artful – it is your unique and individual statement to the world.  My scarves support our need for personal self-expression.

And yes, I still have a day job.

I like to build a story into each product. It could be a pictorial narrative, hidden details, messages to decipher or decode, or a scientific formula. I love the light-bulb moment of personal recognition or the discovery, when someone makes a connection with the scarf.

Tactile qualities are also key to the design of our scarves:  fit, shape, cocoon-like comfort, surface treatments and weaves, handpicked yarns and fabrications.

There is definitely common thread woven into each collection: science and technology-inspired with a hi-tech color palette.

What’s the best thing about what you do? The best – Having a company that is a springboard for creative endeavors, inventive design and experimentation with fashion (and a personal unlimited supply of scarves)  And the worst? I struggle with not having enough time to give to my business.

What’s the best advice you have been given about your business or craft practices? I’ve heard it since I was little – life is too short; always do what you love to do.
