Eloise Sentito, These Isles

Earthenwear handweaver

Totnes, Devon


landscape inspired shawls, scarves, blankets and rugs


£1 — £700


Greetings from a nomadic handweaver touring the Celtic lands in a retro motorhome. I make, to your spec or to my whim, fine and rugged scarves, snugs, cowls, shawls, blankets and rugs for low-impact, woollen landscape medicine. I sell on Etsy. I write. I resist race-to-the-bottom economics and plug eco-socialist principles. I barter. I sometimes teach. I convene the Green Cloth Collective. I also sell pretty pictures of my work with lightly-phrased political challenges, in the form of postcards.
