Fibers of the Earth

IMG_2787

I've previously presented the work of Fios da Terra and my good friend Nina Michaelis at Fibers of the Earth. Now she has a whole new line of products, ready for Nov 2007. Check them out. Whatever you buy helps not only Nina but a whole group of traditional weavers in southern Minas Gerais, Brazil. Here's Nina at work in the Matutu Valley

and you can see more current products at Flickr

Or, you can visit her and stay in her sweet little chalet.
