About The Maker:
Adroit is a small line off wearables hand-sewn using hand dyed and hand-woven Ikat textiles in California using locally sourced textiles and fibers handcrafted in small batches, making one piece at a time. The focus is to create ethical and sustainable products by using natural fibers and natural dyes. I believe in making garments that are timeless yet comfortable, something that you would reach for again and again, I incorporate basic geometric shapes and fluid abstract designs. I follow my intuition while creating and believe that each piece tells you a story. My line of DIY kits are fun to work with and it’s a great way of learning a new craft and an insight to my creative process.
