Hello, and thanks for stopping by!

I’m Zwia, a California-based textile artist and designer. I love colors and textures (obviously!), and enjoy playing with both. I am also passionate about sustainability, so whenever possible I try to use responsibly-acquired materials. I use mostly locally-sourced pieces of upcycled high-end designer upholstery fabrics, from which I carefully hand craft both fine art in the form of art quilts, and wearable/utilitarian/functional art. I am committed to a zero-waste effort in my sewing room, and try to give a new life to even small pieces.

Please feel free to roam around my site and check out my work. If you want to learn what inspires me, take a look at my blog.
