About Us

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 from other artisans ….since I can’t make all.

I started parting with my vintage kimono, haori(silk jackets) and obi at Sheep and Wool, hopefully next year again.

Check out my web site for more info and for Kreative Kumihimo necklaces. Newest Kumihimo Keations are on ETSY at ShawnneeShaban as well as a sampling of origami. Or contact me for photos and/or come to the house.

I also have a the 12 Animals of the Oriental Zodiac line of Origami, with photo posted of Year of the Ram. Washi paper has sheep print on it and sheep charms of that on Good Luck Tsuru earrings and Kimono Pin.

See you next year, in person!!!!!

Our online store at is being restocked with 2022 merchandise and should be ready by Monday, May 16, 2022 (they just need a little time to unpack the boxes that came back from the festival and see what's what). If memory serves, they will have two colors of short sleeve tees, a long sleeve tee, hats, aprons, fleece vests, sling bags and cinch sack/backpacks. Sorry, the large canvas tote bags are all gone.The online store is at www.sheepman.com/product-category/maryland-sheep-wool-festival-online/.

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. Message me or email if any of these sound like they might belong to you, or if there is something else you would like me to check for. #mdsw2022 #lostandfound ... See MoreSee Less
