Folk Fibers is the creation of Austinite Maura Ambrose. We are so happy to have such an inspiring maker joining the ranks!

Not only does Maura create gorgeous, modern quilts by hand but she dyes many of the fabrics with plants she’s grown herself. ¬†She focuses on using substantive dyes that have minimal environmental impact. We are huge fans of the beautiful colors she produces.
