Fabrics in the Wind
A fence across the pasture, a banner, a ribbon against the sky. They blow in the wind, changing shade and color like the clouds…. Norlha fabrics.
Since its inception in 2007, I dreamed to create yak wool fabrics that would rival the old fashioned, traditional cloth so difficult to come by today; hand made, impervious to aging, heirlooms to be passed down. If the Scots and the Irish had them, why not the Tibetans? We set to work, and soon discovered that fabric weaving is very different from making scarves and shawls, requiring a distinctive approach to create a product that holds its shape and lends itself to sewing.
We've developed, over time, a fabric collection that we are proud of, of different weights and blends, with a strong accent on 100% yak wool. We had fun, flapping them in the wind, yak and sheep watching.
