Hi, I'm Vinca, the founder and maker of Loomiere Weaves. For me, Loomiere Weaves is all about colour, taking an ancient craft and giving it a modern twist. I like to let the colours do the talking.
I create one-off handwoven scarves in vibrant, stunning colour combinations designed in modern patterns using vintage 4-shaft looms.
The mathematical nature of weaving is fascinating to me as well as the meditative feel the process gives me.
I enjoy exploring the endless possibilities that the tonal range of hand dyed yarn gives me and the moods that I can create with them and so I source the wool for every scarf separately making them all one-off pieces to be treasured.
I spend my time between Hackney and Dungeness - both places are a continuous source of inspiration in my work.
If you would like to commission me to weave a scarf in your choice of colours, then please get in touch.
