This week we are speaking with Jenny Shulkin of OoLaLoom Handwoven from Kingston, NY.
OoLaLoom was founded in Savannah, GA in the fall of 2013. Jenny creates microbatch handwoven textiles with handdyed, high quality natural fibers and intricate weaves with a focus in baby wrap and ring sling carriers. She also produces multi-use fabrics, scarves & apparel fabric, and throw blankets. OoLaLoom is a member of the Baby Carrier Industry Alliance and Consumer Product Safety Commission compliant.
The weavings she creates are in rich earthy tones, highlighted with the intricate patterns produced in multi-shaft weaving. Using a variety of materials, she creates luminous cloth that is loved and cherished by many who have purchased her work.
We hope you enjoy our conversation as we talk about how OoLaLoom came about, how Facebook is used to drive her business, and a little bit on the inner workings of baby wrap weaving.
