SlowCult is a wife and husband run, multidisciplinary studio focusing on textile and fiber arts. We believe in the handmade, slowly fostered, and adventurously cultivated. Nestled among the unparalleled beauty of the Pacific Northwest, our surroundings serve as a constant inspiration to our process and offerings.
I grew up with a mother passionate about sewing, often hearing stories of my grandmother knitting fine suits and fancy pillows before I was born. I began creating at a young age, making something out of anything I could get my hands on. After traveling around the world by ship and studying textiles along the way, a spark was ignited.
This experience encouraged me to think of the global heritage of textiles and how modern manufacturing was changing the slow, handmade processes that have been passed down for hundreds of years, often by the women within a family. It also allowed me to reflect on the textile heritage in my own family. I feel deeply connected to my mother and grandmother through each stitch I have knit and sewn, as I have taught myself along the way.
After meeting Doc I knew I had found a partner who not only appreciated slow living, but felt the importance of the human heritage behind it. Doc’s passion for building and creating, with a focus on using what’s available only enhanced our vision of what SlowCult would become. Together we built a garden and grew a home with items we made or lovingly re-purposed using all the Pacific Northwest has had to offer.
Now this wife and husband team is excited to share their passion, style, and creative energy with the rest of the world. Together, we can design, create, and build whatever we can dream up with our collaborators, clients, and friends. We are so excited to continue to learn and grow, while keeping slow-crafted textiles at the heart of our work and we look forward to meeting you and seeing what we can imagine together.
