Hello, my name is Erin and welcome to my little online store! A little bit about me: I live in Albuquerque, New Mexico with my boyfriend and my dog. I love plants, crafts, food and warm weather. I was a hairdresser for 4 years and recently quit my job to pursue a career in textiles and focus on the crafts that I am truly passionate about: weaving and macrame. I learned to weave as a child from my mother but didn't pick it back up until I was temporarily laid off during the coronavirus pandemic. I instantly fell in love with how soothing it is and decided I wanted to turn my little hobby into something more. I've always been crafty and love playing around with different mediums but textiles have a special place in my heart. I would love to eventually make large scale macrame installations, rugs, curtains, etc. but for now I’m working a little smaller scale as I learn and grow within my craft. I plan to have new pieces and handmade products out often! I feel so privileged to be able to spend this much time making things that make me happy, it has been so therapeutic and I feel like I’ve found my place.
As a small business it is important to me to work to become as ethical as possible in regards to the suppliers I support, waste minimization, regular reparations to the Black community and donations to LGBTQ+ organizations as well. I am not perfect in this nor am I anywhere close to where I would like to be on this journey but I am actively learning, growing and working to be the best I can be for my community.
I greatly appreciate all of the support I've received so far and I can't wait to see where this little store takes me. Thank you for taking the time to read this and make sure to follow my Instagram @takecaretextiles for more shop updates. Take care! ;-)
Note: Please give me about two weeks to fulfill your order as I am a one woman show and some items are made to order. Commissions may take a little while as well, if you need something by a certain time, please communicate that with me. Thank you!!
