Carly Kusy's work is a synthesis of SAORI free hand weaving, her nostalgia for the past and a desire to design within a more sustainable model. Each one-of-a-kind piece is lovingly handwoven on a SAORI loom in Philadelphia, PA. She intertwines her love of handwork, bold color & pattern with simple silhouettes that are versatile and timeless so that the beauty and humanity of the fabric can shine. Her work is an exploration of the movement of color and our connection to the creative subconscious.

In staying true to the ethos of slow fashion, fabric is cut, and constructed utilizing zero waste garment construction techniques and finished by hand. Carly aims to create pieces that exemplify quality and originality so that they may be unique and lasting pieces in your wardrobe for years to come.
