Our Approach

Process and product: We facilitate a community process so individuals, groups, and families can sit down together and create useful or decorative products. The process is at least as important as the products.

Sustainability: The community weaves recycled materials like T-shirt twine and other strong materials, into useful and attractive products, such as hammocks, hats, hanging planters, shades, and bags.

Our Story

Our idea evolved out of a childhood craft experience with a handheld looping device. With our desire to do something useful that connects people, it became a design tool on the macro level.
