About The Artist
Sarah Parys • Omaha, NE
Fiber and Textiles - Homegoods • WHOLESALE AVAILABLE • CUSTOM COMMISSIONS
My name is Sarah Parys, and I am a self-taught weaver/fiber artist out of Omaha, NE. I began weaving on a simple tapestry loom about 8 years ago and have steadily progressed to now working on a few different floor looms in my home studio. I love the process of weaving and of course the end results. The measuring of of yarn, the dressing of the loom, and of course, the creation of fabric right in front of me is definitely a meditative journey. What I tend to create the most of are scarves, dishtowels, and wall tapestries. Simple patterns combined with different fiber options makes my work very tactile in nature. The possibilities are endless when it comes to weaving and I think that is why I have continued with it for as long as I have.
Q&A with the Artist
Tell us how your work is made.
My work is all handwoven on a few different looms I have in my home studio. My goal is to use all natural and sustainable fibers, which include cotton, wool, alpaca, hemp, bamboo and more. I measure out my warp, dress my loom , wind on, and begin the process of weaving using shuttles that essentially 'weaves' the fabric. Once the warp is complete, it is then cut from the loom and washed and made into different items that include dishtowels, scarves, wall art and more.
