A Love Affair
Textiles, Art and Design
In this moment, it is my belief that the items we surround ourselves with, or not, inform our energy, output, and identity. As designers, and producers it is important to us at Lahuro that the textiles, fibers and production methods we use, provide quality, unique items that engage, inspire and allow for a subtle appreciation of the moment. Lahuro seeks to curate a collection of locally sourced supplies to provide an easy and ethically minded, well designed product line for our customers. Whether it's quilts, duvets, rugs, scarves or yarn, we want you to have a moment in which every use connects you to your surroundings.
Hand dyed and Hand spun
Options, because we are all unique.
One standard we maintain and are continually seeking to improve is the LOCAL standard. As of 2018 we are proud to announce that 50% of our hand dyed yarns, and 75% of our hand dyed/hand spun yarns will be from will be locally sourced (Greater Region) fibers. These include Jacob, Wensleydale and Gotland wools. The other 25% of our hand spun is non locally sourced Alpaca and various forms of silk.
Using Lahuro yarns, these beauties are designed and produced in small batches seasonally. The goal is to combine hand spun and mill spun yarns in order to provide a level of quality that mass production can't touch. The tactile experience is expressed in weight, drape and distinctly handmade details such as precise finishing techniques.
Exclusive designs, Lahuro's quilts, duvets and throws are created in design batches of 3. Collaborating with client and other artists to produce absolutely unique functional fiber art pieces for snuggling in. These pieces are 99% found and up-cycled fabrics. Hand sewn individually.
For me as owner of Lahuro, I find the process of putting these textiles together to be one of the most satisfying creative design challenges.
