An ongoing archive of handwoven textiles for the home and body.
I work exclusively in natural fibres like organic cotton, linen, wool, and hemp, which are environmentally friendly and bio-degradable. It’s important to me that my weaving practice is environmentally responsible and I choose to work with organic, local, second hand, and mill ends materials when possible. I occasionally use natural dyes like indigo, black walnut, onion, and dandelion, and grow and recycle my own plant matter.
As a maker of handwoven textiles, my aim is to create beautiful and useful contemporary craft that become modern heirlooms. I strongly believe that craft is meant to be used as a part of your daily life, and that it enriches you and your experience of the world.
For weaving patterns, exhibition history, and artworks, please visit the Projects page or online shop through the main navigation. Do you have a question about what you see here? Please get in touch by email at amandarataj (a t) gmail (d o t) com – I love to work with small craft galleries, businesses, and restaurants to create custom handwoven textiles or products.
