Introducing The Language of Cloth
I started The Language of Cloth five years ago as a means to support my travel habit. I have always been interested in textiles and usually brought a few pieces back from every country I visited, beginning in Central America 40 years ago. I liked the fact that textiles are easily carried and pack a lot of culture. I had been working in the design field as a decorative painter for many years and sometimes clients wanted to buy some of my textiles. I decided to try collecting and selling textiles as a business and soon I realized that I had found my true calling. My travel is always focused on the indigenous weaving and textile production wherever I go and that path has lead to some of the richest experiences of my life. I’ve started this blog as a way of sharing them and I will be adding to the site as I am able.
