A LITTLE WEATHER
Sandy Mush, North Carolina
A lifelong gardener, Jessica Green was living in New York City in her early 20s when she was asked to concoct natural plant dyes for a weaver— and ended up trying the craft. “When I sat down at a loom for the first time, it was one of those watershed moments,” she recalls. Today, Green lives outside of Asheville, North Carolina, where she raises sheep and makes textiles, from blankets to everyday cloths. The wool in this coverlet and pillows, for example, is hand-spun, “so there’s a year’s worth of time put into them,” she explains. That investment, plus her reimagining of colonial American design motifs, gives her work its distinct appeal. “All handweavers want their cloth to carry the magic of good intention,” says Green. “The world moves so fast; weaving highlights the importance in things that are less efficient.”
