Inkyspider: Textile Artist and Designer


Primordial Soup Cloth Napkins

Morgen is an amazing designer and textile artist who grew up in South Africa and now lives in Kootenays, British Columbia. The moment I saw one of her pillow case covers, I knew I had to share my excitement! She enjoys working with a variety of mixed media techniques on cotton, linen, hemp and silk. Morgen not only dyes her own fabrics, but she paints, sews, and pieces them together to create extraordinary functional art pieces. Her etsy shop, inkyspider, carries everything from housewares, wall hangings and bags, to t-shirts, hoodies and skirts. And as if you thought that was enough, she also has another etsy shop, kootsac, that sells reusable bulk food bags.

If you'd like to find out about her new endeavors, check out her blog, whatdoesthegoldenmean.
