Anna Shapiro, Fiber Artist

Anna Shapiro, fiber artist and clothing designer, creates her textile collection in her Charlottesville, VA studio, Annaesthetic.  Each piece is hand loomed. Anna’s love of form, fabric and texture is a natural extension of her background in sculpture. Her clothing line consists of highly functional, elegant and contemporary pieces.

And, original patterns feature many unconventional approaches to knitting. All designs are made entirely on the loom beginning and ending with one stitch.  Anna’s favorite fiber to work with is bamboo because of its incredibly soft texture and eco- friendly attributes.
