About Us

Since 2004, Wild Fibers Magazine has been featuring stories about the fiber industry from around the world with a focus on culture and environment. Wild Fibers editor, Linda Cortright, also began leading small group tours to spectacular but often remote destinations, from the Russian Arctic to India’s High Himalayas.

In 2015, Wild Fibers opened the first and only cashmere spinning center in the High Himalayas, providing much needed financial support to more than 130 semi-nomadic women. Products from the center are featured on the website and at festivals.

Owing to Wild Fibers global reach, Wild Fibers also offers a boutique line of handmade garments, jewelry and basketry directly sourced from the artisan.

Unable to travel as the result of the pandemic, Wild Fibers published its first book in November 2020, The Eye of Fiber, An Uncommon Story from the Around the World.

We look forward to getting back on the road in 2022 with scheduled tours to Antarctica, Bhutan, Scotland, Alaska, and the Mekong River.

About Us

Suellen McMillen and James Piet Van Woert have been creating jewelry together for over 25 years. By combining their knowledge, skill and artistic energy, they have the ability to create heirloom quality jewelry start to finish.

They carve an initial idea in wax then cast it to make their metal models. After adding intricate details they take a rubber mold of the model. This allows them to recreate their design using the lost wax method.

Many pieces incorporate forged/ hammered techniques, semi-precious stones and enameling. All chains, findings and parts are USA made.

Jim and Suellen do not have any assistants to help with their jewelry production, it is entirely hand-finished by the two of them in their small Lake Placid, NY studio.

Lived in Japan 11 years. Fell in love with all parts of this culture. Traveled and absorbed as much as possible. Studied Ikebana, Tea Ceremony, Doll Making, Origami, Katazome and other arts. I’m also a weaver.

Became addicted to beautiful print Japanese Chiyogami/Yuzen Washi(paper) and couldn’t buy enough. Came back and had to find something to use it for…..make jewelry. Folding since 1990 and still collecting.!!

SAMPLES/LIMITED INVENTORY ON ETSY: ShawnneeShabana and website: shabana.biz

Loved silk kimono, and collected vintage kimono, obi, and obi-jime(belts). Upon returning had a chance to learn the art of Kumihimo(traditional Japanese braiding), but don’t need a belt and silk fiber is expensive so my inner self (a creative/crazy Artisan) decided to PLAY. Constantly collecting different fibers for my ADD(Artisan Design Decision) braiding then focal pieces I create from clay, beads, wood, upcycle, recycle and …

About Us

Once Upon a time, twenty two years ago, I was hit with the epiphany that my purpose in life was to make hats. Driven by my desire to start upon a journey of self fulfillment I found a felting class. On a snowy Saturday I was taught how to make felt hats and fell in love with creating fashion from natural fiber. The process of felting is a very old art that requires hot water, wool, soap, elbow grease and a few simple tools. After taking this felting class I produced a few hats and put them in my father’s country store in Stowe, Vermont. They sold immediately. These hats were light hearted and fun! After years of practice I have perfected my techniques for creating wearable art and so my hats have grown and changed from lighthearted to sophisticated. My designs are and always have been inspired by nature… flowers, trees, animals and all beautiful that surrounds me.

My hats are created in the cottage industry tradition, support local …

About Us

Forty years ago I wove my first Rag Rug. Thirty years ago I had my first booth at the Maryland Sheep and Wool festival. Since that time I have recycled well over thirty ton of used cotton and wool clothing. Yarns used for the warp have always been natural fibers; wool, cotton or hemp. The tools of my trade are a pair of scissors and a 18th century counter balance loom. Energy source is from what I bring to the loom each day.

With roots planted firmly in our past, Rag Rugs continue to be a good choice for any floor, any style home. At a moment in time when we need to lessen our impact on the earth Rag Rugs will soften your step. In addition to my Rag Rugs, five years ago I introduced recycled wool sweaters in the form of hot pads or ‘Sweat’r Pads’ as I have named them. Wool is a remarkable fiber, as you know, and these hot pads …

This little lost lamb kid's mitten was turned in to the Lost & Found and would like to find it's mate. There is also a handmade shawlette someone might be missing, along with the usual random assortment of items -- reading glasses, etc. -- and, no surprise, a folding umbrella and a pair of rubber boots.
