In honour of International Women’s Day #IWD2020, we are recognizing our HK Women and asking you to support the causes, the missions and the businesses they are championing and building.
We partner with artists, crafters, and makers to turn our fabric scraps into art and other innovative items. We call this circular collaboration and it’s a cherished part of our business.
This week we’d like you to meet the lovely and talented, Carolyn Taylor.
She took scraps of HK linen, silk, and cupro; wove them into a sort of ‘wool’ or ‘thread’ and created a durable and dramatic floor mat (more like a piece of art – hang that on a wall) and a gorgeous, textured scarf that we just adore.
Yvette Nekuda is a force of nature, harnessing design for many purposes, all steeped in Eastern European history, art and architecture. An immigrant from Prague, Czech Republic, Yvette journeyed from a home with of whom she has a complicated fondness, to the Netherlands, to eventually finding herself in Calgary. If you have an opportunity to experience first-hand her beauty and creativity – just take it!
