Inspired by the Pacific Northwest
The Oregon Weaver, Karen Gelbard, specializes in exceptionally beautiful handwoven jackets, coats, and scarves woven on hand looms.
Each distinct piece is crafted by hand and inspired by the Pacific Northwest
It begins by developing colorways, with warp and weft inspired by the Pacific Northwest.
There are often more than twenty different colors in any of these warps which add a richness and depth to the cloth.
Once the fabric is woven by hand on the loom, the yardage is rolled onto the cutting table.
Silver scissors flash and pattern pieces emerge.
Serge, stitch, press. Pin, tuck, and fold.
Color, texture, shape, and form grow into an exceptionally beautiful, luxury handwoven garment.
Wherever these garments go,
they tell a timeless story of the beauty of Oregon.
