Christa Louise

Having grown up in a family of artists, Christa Louise started exploring various forms of artistic expression from a very young age. When she first discovered nuno felting, it was like a revelation for her. She fell in love with the freedom of design and the virtually limitless color palette. There is a magical component to this process, which is the reward for the physical exertion that goes into making each piece. It truly encompasses the idea of craft as art.

Christa wanted to work with women in developing countries to help provide them with opportunities for economic independence. Mexico was an obvious choice due to its proximity to the US, as well as the fact that her parents retired to a small village called Ajijic and oversee daily operations. She taught groups of women the process of nuno felting and chose those whom she considered to be best suited for the job. They have been working together since the end of 2009 and they have grown into highly accomplished artisans. Ultimately, they would like to have small pockets of production in various countries all over the world. They consider it a win-win scenario to be able to teach women a skill that allows her to employ them, which hopefully, provides sustainability and empowerment for their own individual futures.
